Back To Top



The Kansas Food Bank pursues its mission through several “Advanced HungerCare” activities. These activities focus on the health, well-being and productivity of food-insecure Kansas families and their children, as well as senior citizens, the homeless, the chronically ill, and all who live in poverty. To illustrate activity volume, by the end of FY 2012, more than 11.2 million pounds of food was distributed, including 1.5 million pounds of fresh produce, to every one of 85 counties throughout the designated service area. This equates to serving well over 32,000 Kansans per week based on the latest 2010 Hunger Study data.
