CBS’s Greatest America Dog winner Travis Brorsen and his dog Presley were a hit yesterday at the Urban Mission Kids Cafe when they stopped by for a visit! Kids Cafe is our after-school program that provides tutoring, mentoring and food to at-risk youth.

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 came to life at Kids Cafe and helped to educate children on manners when the pair visited the site.

The lessons of Adventures with Travis and Presley are now being incorporated into all 16 of the Regional Food Bank’s Kids Cafe sites in central and western Oklahoma. Kids Cafe provides a safe-haven for 850 at-risk youth by providing mentoring, tutoring and food.  The program has been shown to improve grades and behavior, while teaching the importance of eating healthy meals.
