Real Food for Kids: Chefs Feeding Families is a joint initiative with DC-area restaurants to provide nourishing meals to children and families impacted by school closures and job losses due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Real Food for Kids provides funding for food, supplies, and restaurant staff, feeding as many families as possible while supporting restaurant industry jobs.

With the generous support of our community, we have already served over 100,000 meals from 17 distribution sites across the region. And we're not slowing down. Funds raised on Giving Tuesday will be used to get meals into the hardest-hit neighborhoods and to support Real Food for Kids' nutrition education programs that foster healthy choices within our schools.



It is more critical than ever to ensure access to nutritious meals to help keep bodies and minds strong in the face of the COVID-19 pandemic. Each meal served through the initiative aligns with Real Food for Kids' mission to increase access to healthy, whole foods for all children — and now, their families too.
