Thinking about meals when kids are not in school….

When school is not in session, many kids wonder where their next meal will come from.  Thanks to our community partnerships you can help ensure children have access to meals during the summer.

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.  

You Are Invited!

Stamp Out Hunger – May 10, 2014

LCFD 2014

 

It’s time once again for the annual National Letter Carriers Association Food Drive.  On Saturday, May 10, postal workers across the United State will be collecting food for the food banks that provide meals to food insecure households.

The Kansas Food Bank is gearing up for the donations that will be collected not only here in Wichita, but across our 85 county service area as well.  Our friends at NetApp are providing us with those wonderful blue bags again to help make it easy for everyone to place their donated food in.  Select communities will be receiving the collection bags.  Food collected outside of Wichita will be routed to our partner agencies in their respective communities.  Last year the NALC food drive collected over 316,000 pounds of food for the Kansas Food Bank and our partner agencies.   Please help us surpass that number this year and help “Stamp Out Hunger”.
