Kids’ Meals 12th Annual Harvest Luncheon Goes Virtual on Friday, November 13, 2020
Kids’ Meals along with Luncheon Chair Melissa DeAyala are hosting the 12th Annual Harvest Luncheon, a one-of-a-kind compelling virtual event, on Friday, November 13, 2020, at 11:45 a.m.
A vivacious Kid’ Meals’ “spokeskid” will emcee the luncheon and welcome guests to an inspiring, engaging and entertaining afternoon. Guests will join a virtual ride-along in a Kids’ Meals van to deliver meals directly to the homes of hungry children and will also enjoy a special “Who is Kids’ Meals” and “Cycle of Poverty” animated presentation.
Attendees will also experience a virtual tour of Kids’ Meals’ newly expanded 18,000 sq. ft. space and virtually meet kids from the Kids’ Meals program along with a few of the thousands of volunteers including staff drivers who kept the program running during COVID. While learning the impact of hunger in Houston, guests will be able to participate in an online raffle and silent auction curated by Silent Auction Chairs Vanessa and Jeremy Goebel.
During the luncheon, Kids’ Meals will recognize volunteers who stepped up and devoted their time to help the Kids’ Meals program grow 135 percent overnight to feed more than 7,500 children a day at the peak of the pandemic earlier this year.
Luncheon Century Club Honorees include The Cockrell Foundation; Reliant, an NRG Company; The Halliburton Charitable Foundation; The Leslie L. Alexander Foundation; and The Astros Foundation for their contribution to feeding children ages six-years-old and under who face debilitating hunger due to extreme poverty and the pandemic.
Kids’ Meals invites everyone to support the mission to end childhood hunger by purchasing individual tickets, underwrite tables and host their own viewing party with a gourmet meal delivered to their door by Click Virtual Kitchen.
