The Boys & Girls Club of Paterson & Passaic enjoys a relationship with the Community Food Bank of New Jersey and Kids Café, a program of America’s Second Harvest.
The Kids Café program aims to help children escape the cycle of poverty by giving agencies like the Boys & Girls Club in Paterson nutritious meals to serve in exchange for an agreement to act as a safe-haven for the children.
Thanks to the special partnership we enjoy with the Community Food Bank, nearly 250 children receive a hot and healthy meal each weekday at our location on 21st. Avenue in Paterson before they go home for the evening.
It is our hope to extend the Kids Café in order to also provide dinner to children at our Passaic Club on Hudson Street.
