Food 4 Kids is an outreach ministry of the Church of the Holy Spirit. This program began in 2013 and continues as a partnership between the church, the Massachusetts Department of Elementary and Secondary Education (DESE), and other faith-based and community agencies. F4K addresses the hidden need to address childhood hunger on the lower/outer Cape. One in three children on Cape Cod is food-insecure, especially in the summertime when there are no school lunches.

In 2019 we served over 27,000 meals (breakfasts, lunches, and snacks) to children in all eight towns of the lower/outer Cape. Through grants, we gave away 2,500 new children’s books all summer at our meal sites. Over 100 volunteers of all ages help to feed the children — including assembling sandwiches in the kitchen, packing the coolers and delivering them to the sixteen sites, and distributing the meals to the children.
