Kids on the Go

What is Kids on the Go?

Kids on the Go is a program of the Fredericksburg Regional Food Bank which provides children attending summer school or other summer enrichment programs with a healthy prepared meal. Kids on the Go helps to alleviate childhood hunger by bridging the hunger gap when a reliable sources of food may not be available. Children 18 years of age and younger are welcome to receive a free, freshly prepared, well-balanced meal at any of our sponsored sites.
