Kansas Food Pantries and Help Organizations - Information for Kansas City

PLEASE NOTE: If you are aware of additional food pantries for the area covered by this list, please reply with a comment that has their information, or you can contact us via email at support@nowthatscookin.com

Try to give detailed information like you find below. We will add that information into the master list.

NowThatsCookin.Com understands that there are times people are in need. And one of the biggest needs of individuals and most especially of families, is food. Keeping food on the table is taken for granted so many times, but it is when a family starts having issues fulfilling that basic need, that it no longer is taken for granted.

To that end, we do a couple of things.

First, we help promote special events at no charge, that have a food tie in and most especially a charitable food tie in. So when we become aware of events such as food drives, food pantry charity events, etc... we do what we can to help promote those events and do that at no charge to the event.

Secondly, we have launched this information sections such as this in regards to local food pantries, their locations, hours of operation, etc...

Please take time to share our site, let your facebook friends and twitter tweeters know we are here. If you would like to help keep offset the cost of providing and maintaining this site and these resources please think about donating to the site or becoming a sponsor.
