THE STORY:

 

Did you know that more than 37,000 children in Johnson and Wyandotte counties (KS) struggle with food insecurities?  During the 2014-2016 school year, there were 3,898 homeless school aged children in Shawnee Mission, Olathe, KCK and KCMO school districts.  Together, we can change this…

Hands to Hearts began in the Spring of 2009 with a handful of volunteers packing backpacks of nutritious food for 150 inner-city children to take home from school on Fridays when there would otherwise be little or no food to nourish them over the weekends.  The program grew quickly as H2H partnered with Harvesters BackSnack Program distributing 450 backpacks each week.  Today, H2H is serving over 1380 students weekly in 19 schools in Kansas City, KS and Shawnee Mission, KS school districts and is the largest community partner with Harvesters in the Metro.  In addition to the backpack program, H2H operates a year-round clothing closet that provides to any child in need. They also operate a bookmobile program that travels to community events, schools, and any other organizations that request and hand out free books to children.
