Soon children will be out of school for the summer, meaning Our Daily Bread Food Pantry will see an increase in the number of adults coming to the pantry for food to feed their families.
Food drives are essential to keeping shelves stocked
This occurs every summer, and at the same time Catholic Charities’ fiscal year is coming to a close and dollars are tight. The budget for Our Daily Bread, which can purchase deeply discounted items from the Kansas Food Bank, has been stretched thin this fiscal year as even the cost for discounted food items has increased due to inflation.
Summer food drives are essential in helping Our Daily Bread keep its shelves stocked with most needed items.
