Many groups and organizations in the Kansas City community are stepping up to provide meals during the pandemic crisis.

Most are offering meals for children, but some have adult meals too. Scroll down for a list of metro-area resources. A still-growing list of resources can be found at UncoverKC.org

Additional assistance for food and shelter is being offered by the Wyandotte County Unified Government Public Health Dept.

If in need of food, residents can go to wycokck.org/COVID-19 and click the Food Needs Request tab. Answer a few simple questions and provide contact info. The contact info will not be shared. It will only be used to address the request.

The Unified Government Public Health Dept. is fielding requests and partnering with Cross-Lines Community Outreach, who will deliver groceries to residents. Residents can also call 2-1-1 to request food and request assistance with shelter.
