We are excited to announce that CBS’s Greatest America Dog winner Travis Brorsen and his dog Presley will pay a visit to Booker T. Washington Kids Cafe in Enid and the Urban Mission Kids Cafe in Oklahoma City this month!
Our Kids Cafe program provides an after-school safe haven for 850 at-risk youth by providing mentoring, tutoring and food.
Following his win on Greatest American Dog, Brorsen developed a book and DVD series called Adventures with Travis and Presley, which helps children to improve their manners. Adventures with Travis and Presley will come to life at Kids Cafe and educate children on manners when the pair visits the site.
After the program, the lessons of Adventures with Travis and Presley will be incorporated into all 16 of the Regional Food Bank’s Kids Cafe sites in central and western Oklahoma. The program has been shown to improve grades and behavior, while teaching the importance of eating healthy meals.
Big thank you to Travis & Presley for taking time to visit these kids and for being a member of our Celebrity Council! Check back later on for video from the event!

Most dream of a big Thanksgiving feast, but some of us have fallen on hard times and are looking for a little help. As Barry Peterson reports, more and more charities are making sure no one goes hungry this holiday season.
