Spanish term or phrase:comedores infantiles
"Conciente de su papel como agente de cambios comunitarios, la Zona Libre de Colón cumple a cabalidad con su Política de Responsabilidad Social, al auspiciar programas de entrega de útiles escolares; subsidios a instituciones y asociaciones sin fines de lucro; apoyo a comedores infantiles y organizaciones religiosas"
El equivalente a "soup kitchens", supongo, pero... "soup kitchens for children"? ¿Alguna idea mejor?
Explanation: I think one of the problems here is that we don't have an equivalent in English, in the UK the closest would be school canteens where some children get vouchers entitling them to free meals. But in this context it doesn't seem to be linked to schools.
Here you could turn it around to "support for the provision of free meals for children" and thus avoiding the problem of what to call the organisation.
Agh! what a predicament to grade this answer was! (as Yoda would say, maybe :P). In Panama there are "comedores" for poor people in the same sense as "soup kitchens" in the US (I was not aware that the term "soup kitchen" has negative connotations [!], "comedores" in Panama does not carry any negative sense), i.e. for the provision of free meals for poor and/or homeless people. So no, they're not associated with schools... Nevertheless, I chose Jessica's answer as the best solution to my problem, because it explains what they are instead of trying to give them a name... Thanks very very very much to everyone of you!! :) 4 KudoZ points were awarded for this answer
