About Kansas Food Bank
Our mission is to provide comprehensive and compassionate HungerCare whenever and wherever it is needed to safeguard the health, well-being and productivity of food-insecure Kansas families and their children, as well as senior citizens, the homeless and the chronically ill and impoverished among us. Programs includes:
The Kansas Food Bank is the primary source of food for hundreds of hunger-relief agencies in our 85-county service area. These agencies include food pantries, soup kitchens, shelters, after-school programs and senior delivery programs.
Food 4 Kids was established for students who are food insecure and who are not getting sufficient food outside of school on a regular basis. The Food Bank provides food and supplies to Food 4 Kids schools in Kansas, which are operated in partnership with community schools.
Because hunger is a problem in rural communities as well as urban areas, the Kansas Food Bank operates a delivery route system that brings millions of pounds of food to hunger-relief agencies across our 85-county service area.
Each day the Kansas Food Bank’s refrigerated trucks head out to pick up fresh meat, produce, dairy, bakery and lunch meat items from over 38 Wichita-areal Dillons, Walmart, Sams Club and Target Stores. These retailers pull product that is approaching sell-by date but is still high quality food, stored at proper temperature.
