Annie and friends Gives Back to Kids' Meals
My name is Annie Poythress! You may know me through my parents (Lee Poythress and Michelle Schmidt) or because I am friends with your kids. One thing you might not know is that my mother and I have been members of the Texas Sage Chapter of the National Charity League (NCL) since 2016 and, together, we have nearly 400 hours of community service. One organization that is near and dear to our hearts and whom we have served via NCL is Kids’ Meals (www.kidsmealsinc.org). At the onset of the pandemic my mom and I started volunteering with Kids’ Meals and since then we have logged nearly 75 hours delivering and preparing thousands of meals . Kids' Meals serves as a front line responder to families w/ food insecurity and poor access to food by delivering meals directly to their homes in 44 Houston-area zip codes.

In February 2021, our state was hit with an unusual winter storm which caused power and water outages for days. Kids’ Meals was affected by loosing all of their food and supplies to give to the families supported by them. In 2020 and 2021, between this storm and the pandemic, these families have been devastated. As Kids’ Meals restocks their food and supplies they need your financial support!

As the year ends and you are thinking of donating to charitable organizations, would be willing to donate money to Kids’ Meals so they can continue to feed 3000-6000 Houstonian children per week?

I thank you in advance for your generosity

Kids' Meals Inc.
In Support of Kids' Meals Inc.
Kids’ Meals, Inc. is the nation’s only free, healthy meal delivery program for children.  Our mission is to end childhood hunger in Houston by delivering meals every weekday, year-round,  directly to the homes of poverty-stricken preschool-aged children who suffer from food insecurity and often live in food deserts.  We focus on children age 5 and under who are not only at a critical development stage, but cannot access school-based free meal programs. We share grocery bags of fresh produce/pantry staples and connect families with vital wrap-around services to help break the poverty cycle.
