When a child is hungry because there’s not enough food to eat, “being a kid” can be hard work. Kids Aid was created to provide food to hungry children within our community. Through the collaborative support of local schools, businesses and individual volunteers, Kids Aid is a community solution to “Helping Kids Be Kids.”

Kids Aid is a non-profit organization dedicated to providing for the needs of children, with a primary focus on supplying food to hungry kids. In collaboration with Mesa County School District 51, our Backpack Program sends food donations home with children who otherwise would go hungry over the weekend.
