Support Our Fund-A-Need: Summer Food Drought


This year’s Fund-A-Need for the 38th Annual Ben & Betty Zarda Family Golf Classic will benefit our Kids Summer Food program.

For struggling families who rely on school food programs to help feed their children, the summer months are challenging. They turn to local food pantries when they have no other options.

While demand increases, food donations to our pantries tend to decrease throughout the summer. At a time when families need us most, our pantry shelves are growing empty. Your donation can help Catholic Charities of Northeast Kansas feed families this summer.

No one should experience hunger this summer – especially a child.
