4 Ways To End Hunger in Kansas City
Today I’ve got 4 ways to end hunger in Kansas City. I am so happy to partner with Harvesters- The Community Food Network, an organization that truly reaches out and continually serves our community.
Harvesters distributes food through 620+ nonprofit agencies in a 26 county service area of NW Missouri and NE Kansas. Did you know that Harvesters feeds more than 141,500 different people every month. EVERY MONTH. That is crazy to me.
You may not realize just how many people need help with food, there is literally not a county in the Harvesters service area that does not receive food. 25% of those served by Harvesters are children, 20% are seniors and nearly half of all households had at least one adult who worked in the last year. Only 5% of people receiving food are homeless.
What if you had to choose between your next meal, a critical prescription or rent? Those are the kind of decisions many people in our Kansas City community are facing and where Harvesters steps in to help. People who are facing hunger challenges can’t move on to provide for their families.
Harvesters is an amazing food bank and in 2011 Harvesters was named Feeding America’s Food Bank of the Year! Harvesters mission is to feed hungry people today and work to end hunger tomorrow. Harvesters envisions a time when everyone in our community will have access to enough nutritious food to maintain a healthy lifestyle. With that in mind Harvesters has started a new campaign called Hungry4More.
