Neighborhood of Good® with Lauren Alaina

By , February 13th, 2019 9:40am

We are so proud to be a part of this effort with State Farm’s Neighborhood of Good and Lauren Alaina.  Lauren visited the Kansas Food Bank back in November when she was here in concert at Intrust Bank Arena.  She and several of her fans came in to help pack Food 4 Kids packets and discovered the magic that volunteering here at the food bank brings.

 

Are you #Hardwiredtohelp? The Staff at KFB is!

By , February 1st, 2019 11:42am

Would you like to win a pair of tickets to see Metallica?  Here is how you can do just that!  We will be giving away two pair of tickets to see Metallica on Monday, March 4th at Intrust Bank Arena.

*Join us in celebrating METAL, the band METALLICA that is!

Are you #HardwiredToHelp?

Show us your best 80’s picture or better yet, bring out that 80’s attire and come volunteer with us at the food bank between January 14th and Feb 27th and enter to win a pair of tickets to see Metallica at Intrust Bank Arena on Monday, March 4th.

Every volunteer session will equal one entry.  Bring a friend who has not volunteered here before and earn an additional entry.

The 80’s Staff

Some of us here at the Kansas Food Bank actually lived the metal days of the 80’s long before we became METAL CAN aficionados.

For four weeks leading up to the drawing we will post our “80’s Staff” showing off their best look (from the 80’s of course)!  We will encourage people to drop off canned items during these four weeks to support the staff member who will draw the lucky winners of the two pair of tickets to see Metallica on March 4th.  This will give our staff the opportunity to compete a bit as well, sharing their posts encouraging people to drop off specific canned items.  The 80’s week staff that collected the most pounds will draw the winners.

Response to Federal Shutdown

By , January 25th, 2019 3:10pm

The Situation:  Thousands of people in our 85-county service area have been impacted by the federal government shutdown. This includes federal employees, contractors who worked for the federal government, SNAP recipients and local businesses who do business with the federal government.

Many of these people may be or have already been forced to make tough decisions between paying the rent/mortgage, paying utilities and other bills and buying food. With the announcement today that the shutdown has temporarily ended, that is a big relief for families affected. However many have immediate food needs now and are unsure of when back pay will be issued.

How is Kansas Food Bank Helping?  Anyone impacted by the government shutdown can visit one of Kansas Food Bank’s network of partner agencies. Our network of food pantries, United Methodist Open Door, Catholic Charities Our Daily Bread, First MCC Table of Hope, Salvation Army, His Helping Hands and more are ready to provide assistance as well and many are expanding guidelines to receive assistance in order to accommodate requests from those impacted by the shutdown. This network also includes food kitchens that provide hot meals onsite such as the Lord’s Diner.

To access dates and locations for any of these food assistance sites, please click here:  2019-01-25_GovShutdownHelpAgencies.

The Kansas Food Bank has provided food boxes for Wichita Airport Authority. There are an estimated 200 Federal employees working at the airport. This includes TSA, Federal Aviation Administration, Customs and Weather Service. Wichita Airport Authority reached out to the Kansas Food Bank asking for help before President Trump made his announcement temporarily ending the shutdown. They are collecting food and hygiene items for airport workers affected by missing their second paycheck in a row. Valerie Wise, Air Service Development and Marketing Manager, said they will monitor when donations are no longer needed.

As always the Kansas Food Bank is ready to assist in any crisis.
