It is hard to believe the New Year is already upon us. With that comes a renewed focus of providing missing meals to our neighbors in need.
Your Kansas Food Bank depends on generous donations from individuals, groups, and corporations to pursue our mission of feeding Kansas’s hungry. These donations take many forms. They can be a one-time donation, a monthly commitment, or a bequest. Organizations can give grants or organize workplace food or fund drives. There are countless ways that Kansans contribute each year to making our state a better place. And it is with this generous support that Your Kansas Food Bank is able to serve all or part of a meal to more than 32,000 Kansans each week.
Peoples’ biggest misconception is that their donation won’t go very far. They often think that a dollar won’t make a difference, but nothing could be further from the truth. For every dollar donated, Your Kansas Food Bank can provide four meals to families in need. In 2012, we distributed over 9.6 million meals to children, families, and seniors in need of emergency food assistance.
Every dollar, every can of food, is one more step towards ending hunger in our community. We would like to offer a heartfelt Thank You to all of those whose donations make our work possible. Together, we continue to provide hope to families facing hunger.
