It is more blessed to give than to receive.
– Acts 20:35

According to the USDA, more than 34 million people, including 9 million children, in the United States are food insecure.


At Cara Caters, we are dedicated to providing kids with the food they need to thrive. Our mission is to help feed children during weekends, holidays, and summertime if they find themselves in a place where they need free food.

Food Bags

We have programs to reach children starting in Ellis County with the goal to get food to children wherever they are in The United States. To start our efforts, we will begin in Ennis, TX and be partnering with The Boys and Girls Club of Ennis as well as Ennis ISD.

For now, our partnership with The Boys and Girls Club will include buying and distributing food to 268 kids on Fridays to help get them through the weekends as well holidays.  As we grow, we will provide food during the summertime. 


For Ennis ISD, we will help supplement the existing Backpack Program by including more substantial food items. Backpack programs offer children free food for weekends and school breaks. We will also help Rice ISD, Palmer ISD, and Italy ISD with their school food pantry programs to help keep it stocked.


These items may include:

  • Breakfast items like oatmeal or granola bars

  • Easy to prepare meals such as Chicken Helper, Chef Boyardee, Ramen noodles, mac and cheese, peanut butter and jelly sandwiches, chicken pouches, or soup

  • Fruit 

  • Vegetables

  • Bread

  • Water

Cara and Volunteers

We rely on the support of volunteers to help us feed kids in our community. Whether you can help us pack food baskets or serve meals, we welcome your help.

Join us for our upcoming events and help support our mission to feed kids with dignity.


Accompanying her big hair and her larger-than-life personality is a voice that’s even bigger. Listen closely and you’ll hear remnants of Lorrie Morgan, Dolly Parton, Aretha Franklin and Alan Jackson. It all makes for a sound that’s familiar -- like your favorite 90’s country -- yet uniquely fresh.
