"I'm hungry and I'm cold. I had to sleep in our car last night and I'm late for school." This encounter between a school child and a member of First Pres couldn't be ignored and in 2007, Kids Aid was created to try to meet the overwhelming need of childhood hunger in Mesa County. Starting as a small effort in a few schools, Kids Aid now provides a weekend supply of food for any child who needs it in every school in District 51. First Pres has been supporting the "backpack program" since its inception in 2007.
