Contact to reserve your spot.  Only 15 spots available.

A Kid-Friendly School-based Program – Because the most essential school supply is food. Food 4 Kids was established for students who are food insecure and who are not getting sufficient food outside of school on a regular basis. The Food Bank provides food and supplies to Food 4 Kids schools in Kansas, which are operated in partnership with community schools. The Food 4 Kids program allows participating schools to receive food and backpacks from the Kansas Food Bank at no cost so that we can provide food to chronically hungry children.

The Kansas Foodbank is located at 1919 E. Douglas, Wichita, KS  67211.
