Kids Cafe Program

The government shutdown could possibly affect a program within the Wichita Falls Food Bank.

The "Kids Café Program" within "Feed America" provides healthy after school meals to kids ages five through 18.  Unfortunately, they will no longer be funded after November 1st, 2013 if the government shutdown continues.

Mark McKethan, Executive Director for Wichita Falls Area Food Bank, said it could be devastating for children and families.

"We serve approximately 150 to 200 students a day providing those meals and it's a devastating loss," McKethan said.

The loss of funds for the kids café program will not only hurt communities in schools.  The South Side You Center and The Boys and Girls Club will also be affected.
