Kidz Grub's objective is to provide a nutritious dinner, ongoing educational assistance, caring support and life-forward mentorship in a safe after-school environment to the 'At Risk' children of the greater Houston, Texas area.
We love what we do at Kidz Grub because we are able to see the smiles, hear the laughter, and experience the positive results in the children we work with.
Many of our 'Kidz' joined our programs at a stage in their life when they were feeling hopeless. Through continual listening, nourishing, and engaging with them we have been able to see the positive outcome and benefit for them. Their improvements were in physical, mental and emotional health. Their grades improved and their ability to navigate familial and societal paths was strengthened to the benefit of all.
Our Core Values
Support and Mentorship requires a solid foundation
Honesty & Integrity
At every level, with children, sponsors, our teams, and with our own families, we understand and convey -always- that which is needs to be shared. We never back down from any obstacles or challenges. Delicate at times.
Reliability and consistency are required for every individual and program that Kidz Grub has the opportunity to engage with.
To foster the growth need for these children we must always demonstrate a position of being non-judgmental, to accept others' differences, and to embrace each individual as the 'special' person they are.
Kidz Grub Cares
For more than five years Kidz Grub has been diligent in it's efforts to better nourish, support, and care for the children it has the honor to work with. The children involved in the program are between the ages of 6 to 18. Presently most of them are in the elementary and junior high categories but we are optimistic that through the efforts of today, those that we are working with will continue to grow us and to introduce others who are in need.
Recent research shows that many children who do not have enough to eat wind up with diminished capacity to understand and learn
I have the audacity to believe that
There is no finer investment for any community than…
Hunger makes a thief
There’s gonna be some stuff you gonna see that’s gonna make it hard
It is unthinkable that any child should go hungry.
If another country were doing this to our children, we’d be at war.
…the good news to a hungry person is bread.
Hunger is not a problem. It is an obscenity.
I went to bed hungry many nights as a child…
