Mission

We Feed Northland Kids

1 in 8 children in Kansas City’s Northland communities struggle with food insecurity, meaning that they lack reliable access to enough affordable and nutritious food to support their health and development. Food insecurity presents daily physical and emotional stresses to these kids and their families.

Feed Northland Kids provides children nourishment they need to grow, learn and thrive. For elementary students, we supply BackSnacks in partnership with Harvesters. In middle and high schools, we stock Pantries with ready-to-eat food and snacks. And we serve entire families with our Community Food Kits, which feature non-perishable staples, fresh produce and ground beef. Your support helps the food-insecure kids here in Clay and Platte Counties get the nutrition they need to reach their full potential.
