....Everyone's Been Asking: When's the Next Food Box Distribution?
Good and Bad News--the USDA has approved another round of funding for the food boxes, however our local partner in Gordon Food Service will not be engaged in this contract. KCFB is looking into options and, basically, it's too soon to say what September-November will look like for events. Please 'Subscribe' to the website for the most up-to-date info. When we know more--so will you!

KCFB Board News:
KCFB's Board of Directors has committed itself to raising the funds needed to hire its first dedicated staff person (beyond the many awesome volunteers) in the coming months. This is great news as KCFB ramps up capacity to meet the rising emergency food needs during the pandemic.
How might you help us meet this goal?
