Kids Cafe kicks off at Albany Boys & Girls club

ALBANY, GA (WALB) - A program that will help ensure children don't go to bed hungry kicked off Thursday in Albany.

That's renowned Atlanta chef and cookbook author Virginia Willis cooking a healthy, kid-friendly meal to help open Albany's second Kids cafe.

Uncle Ben's donated all the food for the program through a Mars Foods grant.

It will provide free hot meals to about 125 low-income children after school at the Jefferson Street Boys & Girls club four days a week.

The first Kids Cafe opened at the Friendship Baptist Church last December.

Food Bank President Brett Kirkland says he hopes to expand the program to all of the Boys & Girls clubs in Albany in the next couple years.
