We have had an overwhelming response to the call needing volunteers.  We have had so much response that right now we are scheduling into next year!  Our deepest “THANKS” to everyone who helped us pack Food 4 Kids packets so we could get all our deliveries made this month.  And an even bolder “THANKS” to those groups that let us reschedule them when we needed to.  We could not do what we do without such dedicated and compassionate volunteers.

For more information and to schedule in 2017 please contact Larry at 265-3663.

A Look Back Over the Past 30 Years

By , January 5th, 2015 10:10am

Here is a look back at our previous locations!

Very first building

1984:  The Kansas Food Bank began operating out of a temporary rented space in Wichita. It partnered with 16 agencies to distribute nutritious food to families, children and seniors experiencing hunger.

Second Bldg on Boston

1987:  The first permanent food distribution center was purchased and opened on East Boston Street.

Current building

 

2006:  The Kansas Food Bank moved to its current location on East Douglas Street. The new site is much larger, enabling us to double our food distribution capacity.
