Thinking about meals when kids are not in school….

Baxter Springs Tornado Relief Effort

By , April 29th, 2014 4:49pm

baxterphotocollageBrian and Frank made the trip down to Baxter Springs today taking some much needed supplies to our agency at Trinity Worship Center.  They are a soup kitchen and pantry that serves a hot meal to the community every Monday through Friday.  Normally, they serve about 180 meals a night, including many take-home meals for the home-bound, disabled, and elderly in their community.  To meet the need, they are now open and serving breakfast, lunch, and dinner.  It was a bit chaotic yesterday morning as you might imagine, but for lunch they had between 500 and 600 hot meals served, and 300 some served for dinner, all while running their freezers on generators waiting for the power to be restored.  From one of the members of their team of fantastic volunteers:  “We’re doers, but this being right in the middle of friends, family, and loved ones is hard in a different way.  We’ll do it all joyfully, but being held up in prayer right now would be such a blessing.”  Please keep them, and the victims of this disaster, in your thoughts and prayers as we move forward with recovery efforts.

The Great American Milk Drive

According to Feeding America, the nation’s largest domestic hunger-relief organization, milk is one of the items most requested by food bank clients, yet there is a nationwide shortage because it is rarely donated. That will soon change, thanks to The Great American Milk Drive, the first-ever national program to help deliver highly desired and nutrient-rich gallons of milk to hungry families who need it most.

Hunger impacts 1 in 6 Americans, including 12.5 million families who do not have access to adequate nourishment to help them reach their full potential. Hunger has no boundaries and is a problem that exists in urban, suburban and rural communities. 

Map the Meal Gap shows how hunger impacts every county in the country. With its network of more than 200 food banks and 61,000 food pantries, soup kitchens and emergency shelters throughout the country, Feeding America helps provide food to families in need – including many in Kansas. 

It’s been a challenge for Feeding America to meet the demand for milk due to the lack of donations – canned goods and other non-perishable items are more likely to be donated. Now, it’s going to be easier for Kansas residents to lend a hand and contribute nutritious milk to food insecure families.

With a simple click of a mouse (www.milklife.com/give) or text message (text “Milk” to 27722), it will now be possible to buy much-needed milk and donate it for as little as $5.00 to a family who does not have regular access to milk. By entering your zip code, you can ensure that the milk is delivered from the farm to the Kansas Food Bank.
