We know that many churches reach out to people in need, during this giving season and throughout the year. This year, The Community Voice and Popeyes joined together to encourage even more giving and in support of the Kansas Food Bank.

We offered to give the church who donated the most food to the Kansas Food Bank, $100 worth of Popeyes Chicken to be used of the funeral repasts. We selected the Kansas Food Bank because they support several Northeast Wichita soup kitchens and pantries. Once a week, St. Paul AME and Grant Chapel offer a warm and filling lunch to anyone in the community that needs a free meal. North Heights Christian Church and Chisholm Trail Church of Christ operate food pantries, helping people stretch their funds between checks. 

The winning church is Progressive Missionary Baptist Church, 2727 E. 25th Street, Wichita. Congratulations to the members of Progressive and their Pastor Roosevelt DeShazer. 

We know a number of churches in their own way, through other organizations, or either directly to members of the community and even to members of their own congregation, and for this we thank you.
