The Kansas Food Bank is the primary source of food for hundreds of hunger-relief agencies in our 86-county service area. These agencies include food pantries, soup kitchens, shelters, after-school programs and senior delivery programs. The Wichita Cargill Cares Complex is the central collection and distribution facility for this food. Working with Feeding America’s network of food distributors, the Kansas Food Bank receives millions of pounds of donated food product. This inventory is further supplemented by what is collected through local food drives, food recovery programs, and food we purchase at steeply discounted rates. Drawing on these multiple sources, the Kansas Food Bank is able to offer our hunger-relief agencies a nutritious variety of non-perishable and fresh food items. The agencies then use our food to supply pantries, food box distribution programs and on-site feeding programs.
