Our Daily Bread Food Pantry at Catholic Charities is available to households based on the number of people living in the home. Many come for food because of an unforeseen crisis, illness, job loss or accident. Food can be provided once each month for families and individuals.
Our Daily Bread Food Pantry offers a “shopping experience,” including volunteer personal shopping assistants, who help visitors choose foods their families will enjoy.
If you are new to the pantry, or it is your first time since July 1, the following items are requested:
- Photo identification for the person picking up food
- Proof of identification for all other people living in the household (i.e. social security card, birth certificate, medical card, school ID., etc.) NOTE: We do not take copies of any form of identification.
- Proof of current address; an item mailed to your home within the last 30 days, clearly marked with your name, date and address. NOTE: You will need to provide your photo ID each month you come to pick up food.
Kansas Food Assistance
The Food Assistance Program helps low-income Americans purchase nutritious, healthy food. However, only half of those eligible to receive food assistance benefits are currently enrolled. Nationally the program is called SNAP and in Kansas it is called Food Assistance.
