Our warehouse may be moving, but we will always be in Topeka. While we need to move our physical distribution center, our commitment and ability to serve all 13 Kansas counties remains as strong as ever. With more than 300 agency partners and 83 monthly mobile distributions our mission to mobilize the power of our community is strong. We are committed to fighting food insecurity as long as we’re needed, and we hope you’ll continue to partner with us. Here are some ways that you can get involved.

Agency Partner Volunteer Opportunities

Tuesday, May 14 is our last volunteer shift at our Topeka facility. We highly encourage you to continue volunteering to fight food insecurity with some of our agency partners in Topeka.
