Whether it’s nutrition, education, tech, and or financial literacy, which we consider to be some of the cornerstones of a vital, healthy, productive society; wherever there is a need Kikstart Inc. seeks to create programs that fill those voids.
To empower the minds of the community using a foundation built on solving hunger & the importance of adequate nutrition; creating a snowball effect that empowers the minds of the entire globe.
Kikstart Inc. services THE PEOPLE ! ALL AGES & ALL DEMOGRAPHICS. Individuals living in low-income areas have always been our priority, but we never turn our backs on a person in need. If there is a need we try our hardest to help.
One of our many goals has always been to help those most vulnerable in our community, the children. By making children a priority, Kikstart provides programs that help them succeed in life and provide hope to their life. For our babies we have diapers, formula, and newborn care packages filled with the essentials.

This program is designed to serve hungry children healthy FREE nutritious meals during the summer when our schools are not in session.
We provide needy families in our community with boxes of food. Participants may receive a food box every two weeks. We will also provide recipients additional help if our food boxes are not sufficient for their needs.
Our back to school drive provides necessary items to students free of charge. Items that we provide include, Backpacks, pencils, pens, folders, notebooks etc.
Through our after-school program, we provide tutoring, mentorship and after school activities to keep our youth occupied. This program is designed for kids as young as 7 and as old as 17.
Kikstart has been the engine behind numerous programs; but the one that stands out to us the most is our work during the pandemic. Many children relied on their schools’ free lunch programs, and because of COVID-19 they were not able to attend school and didn’t have meals to eat. We created multiple food sites around Jefferson County in Birmingham, AL, and provided over 2 MILLION MEALS since the start of the pandemic in 2019. Today we partner with over 20 organizations, churches, and city officials to serve thousands of nutritious meals each month.
