KCHD FREE Dental Clinic

February 2018 Meeting

Many adults are unable to access dental care due to socioeconomic duress, thus are forced to live with untreated tooth decay or other health-impacting dental conditions. Medicare and Medicaid do not cover dental health.

BLESSINGS IN A BACKPACK - Long Beach Elementary

April 2015 KICK-OFF Meeting

One in five American children faces food insecurity. During the school week, most of these children depend on the federal free and reduced meal program their school offers. Sometimes, the meals at school are the only ones they get. When the school closes its doors on Friday afternoon, many of these children go home to empty cupboards and empty bellies for 65 hours until they return to school on Monday morning. Who will feed them this weekend? Blessings in a Backpack mobilizes communities, individuals and resources to provide food on the weekends for elementary school children who might otherwise go hungry.
