Doing Your Part to Help!
Up to 15% of households in Jackson County and 11% of households in Johnson County qualify as “food insecure,” meaning they may have food today, but don’t know if they will have enough food tomorrow. For households with children this percentage jumps as high as 24%. These are our friends, family and neighbors.
So you want to get involved? There are many easy and fun ways to help. You can sponsor a Food Drive at your workplace, school, place of worship or in the community.
Ready to schedule your drive?
Call Jo Hickey, Pantry Director at 913-327-8257 or firstname.lastname@example.org to schedule the delivery of your donation barrels. We also can help with posters, hunger education information and pickup the donations when your drive is over.
Consider having a Charitable Birthday Party with food staples replacing gifts, or start a community service or B’nai Mitzvah Project. The possibilities are endless and we are here to support you with marketing materials, donation barrels and ideas!
