Hope Changes Everything
Catholic Charities of Northeast Kansas serves our neighbors, of all faiths, through help, hope and hospitality. With your help, we are able to animate the Gospel by putting love into action.
Our needs are ever-changing in response to the issues facing those who are economically and socially challenged across our 21-county service area. Whether through volunteering, donating, working with us, or spreading the word about our services, you can answer the call to love by making a difference in our community.
An Ongoing Food Drought
With the rising cost of groceries, supply chain issues and a 69% increase of those accessing our eight food pantries, the demand to feed our neighbors in need is critical.
In 2022, we had an astounding 25,000 additional visits to our food pantries compared to the previous year. We are on par for that or more as the number of individuals served seeking food through our pantries continues to rise. At a time when food pantry visitors need us the most, our pantry shelves are growing empty. All our food pantries are experiencing what we call a food drought. Supply chain issues and today’s increasing inflation-related costs are making it difficult to purchase the food we need. Additionally, our donations are down almost 20%.
