hunger in the community

America is known as the land of plenty. But for 1 in 6 Americans, hunger is a reality. Many people believe that the problems associated with hunger are confined to small areas of society, certain areas of the country,  or certain neighborhoods. But the reality is much different.

  • In Wyandotte County, KS 19.2% of the total population live in poverty.*
  • In Johnson County, KS 4.6% of the total population live in poverty.*

With the help of volunteers, like you, we can help change the statistics in our community. Johnson County merchants have offered short-date bakery products for needy families. We need volunteers that can drive from merchant to merchant to pick up bread and deliver it to select locations in Kansas City, KS.

If you are interested in joining this ministry,  you can reach us at 913-385-3663 or info@handstoheartskc.org. Please include BREAD in the subject line.
