Our Story

Feeding Our Kids was founded in 2013 by Ann Kirkland and Jenelle Thompson-Keene after they learned that kids were going home hungry in their kids’ schools. The program started with 18 kids at Westview and Robeson Elementary schools in Champaign.

Since then, we have grown to support more than 900 school-aged children in 39 schools and childhood programs across Champaign County and Tuscola.

These children receive bags of nutritious snacks on weekends and holidays through Feeding Our Kids.
