Kids Summer Food Program Sees Increase in Volunteers
In 2016, Catholic Charities of Northeast Kansas committed to increasing the number of sites for the Kids Summer Food Program. Statistically speaking, more sites meant being able to feed more children. However, the challenge then became more sites also required additional volunteers to help facilitate those sites.
That was a short-lived concern because, once word got out, volunteers across the entire 21 county service area stepped up, ready and willing to help out their neighbor.
