Kids Camp Returns at the North Texas Food Bank

The summer day camp will empower young people to understand and fight hunger.

Registration is now open for the North Texas Food Bank’s second annual day camp for children.

Open to kids ages 8 through 11, Kids Camp will take place during eight different Monday sessions that run from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the North Texas Food Bank Perot Family Campus in Plano.

Sponsored by Whataburger, the day camp will empower young people to understand and fight hunger in their community.

“Whataburger is pleased to once again partner with the North Texas Food Bank in sponsoring its second annual Kids Camp where children across North Texas will learn more about food insecurity and the role that they can play in closing the hunger gap,” said George Gonzalez, Brand Leader for Whataburger Region 1100.

Campers will spend the day at the NTFB’s Perot Family Campus participating in various activities to encourage learning and compassion surrounding the work of the Food Bank and how hunger impacts our neighbors, including children like them.

At the camp, attendees will receive a behind-the-scenes look at the North Texas Food Bank, including activities related to hunger, gardening and nutrition. Campers also will participate in a condensed volunteer activity of packing kitted food boxes for neighbors facing hunger.

Said Ben, a 9-year-old who attended camp in 2023, “Kids Camp was so fun. In a short time, we packed 1,258 meals. That’s pretty cool.”

“At the North Texas Food Bank, fighting hunger together means engaging everyone in our community – and that includes getting a jump start on empowering the youngest generation to understand and fight hunger in their neighborhoods and communities,” said Cassie Collins, Director of Community Engagement for the North Texas Food Bank. “The North Texas Food Bank service area has the fourth-highest level of food-insecure children in the country with 1 in every 6 kids facing hunger. Kids Camp is a great way to build the next generation of hunger warriors.”

There are eight Kids Camp sessions available for sign-up.

Each camp session will be limited to 25 registrants and families with more than one child should complete a separate form for each child.
