Thanks for your interest in Something to Eat!  

We have adjusted our packing protocols under Covid-19 guidelines to enable small groups and churches to pack meals safely. If you are interested in participating, please complete the interest form and our staff will be in touch with you.  

 In addition, Something to Eat is an active partner in a monthly food distribution at The Franklin Center in the Argentine District of Kansas City, KS.  We are always in need of volunteers to help serve families at this event.
