We maintain a small pantry to supply the needs of the shelter. We also help those exiting the shelter by giving them at least a week’s worth of “starter” groceries to help them stock their new homes. Food insecurity is an additional stressor in times of crisis and one that we can immediately address through cooperative, community involvement.
We will help others in need of food assistance if we have sufficient items on hand. For more information on ways you can help with our food needs, please call us at 620-365-7566. Thanks to the efforts of wonderful community partners, we are able to help address local food insecurity needs.
