Oh, the magic of the mouse!Welcome to the Kind Mouse
We feed local children with food insecurities every week – children in your own backyards. Chronically Hungry, new hungry, homeless and at risk of homelessness and families downsized by the economy.
Kind Mouse’s Vision
Our mission is to assist families in transition and their chronically hungry children while developing the next generation of volunteers to carry on the mission of The Kind Mouse. No hardworking individual should ever feel despair due to economic hardships beyond their control. Everyone has a right to feel safe and secure in their own homes and no one should ever go hungry…

From Gina Wilkins
Hello! Thank you for visiting our website. We hope that you will enjoy our progress and wish to join our Mouse Family!
It has been an exciting 6 years for The Kind Mouse. From a dream starting in a back bedroom of my home, to now filling thousands of little tummies and serving so many! With the help of many, many wonderful volunteers we have started outreach programs, shot awareness videos, have had numerous local TV spots, print media attention, awards and recognitions. Yes, we have been blessed!
I am most proud of our Kids Feeding Kids Programs. Local students feeding children in their own backyard; some in their own schools. Through our Mice In Training and Mice Intern Programs we are grooming our future leaders. These amazing kids ages 5 – 18 are learning the ins and outs of running a nonprofit as well as the value of service.
Many wonderful people have come through our doors – volunteers, clients, donors and sponsors. Our community has embraced this little Mouse of ours and has made her what she is today.
I look forward to many more years of our working together in the fight against local child hunger. Thank you for joining us in our efforts.
It takes a large litter to run THIS Mouse.

It's a Mouse Thing!
Did you know a child who cannot read and write has a better chance of being incarcerated? If you don’t eat, you cannot concentrate! Kind Mouse is helping to keep children out of jail. Kind Mouse is giving children hope of a brighter future. There are kids who don’t know where their next meal outside of school comes from, kids digging through trash cans to bring food home for their baby brothers and sisters, children begging for food from their teachers and peers, together we can help change that.
