Families in our community are struggling.

The demand on food banks has increased dramatically due to the economic impact of the pandemic. At Something To Eat™, a program of Youthfront, we’re taking calls regularly from our partner food pantries who need our meals.

You can help.

1. Pack meals with us!

Due to the essential nature of food distribution, Something to Eat™ has been able to adjust its packing program to provide meals under the current COVID-19 CDC and food code guidelines. You can assist by packing Something to Eat’s nutritious cheesy rice and vegetables meal for distribution to food pantries in our community.

Those who have been quarantined together in one household – families, couples or individuals – can volunteer for a timeslot to package meals at Youthfront’s Argentine, KCK facility, which has been specifically set up for small group meal packing under the current state guidelines. A Youthfront staff member will maintain social distance to provide instruction, and the packing facility will be fully sanitized between volunteer sessions.
