Kinship Food Drive


Kids Impact Community and Kinship Community Food Center is looking for your help! Kinship’s shelves are currently quite bare, making it difficult for them to fulfill their mission. They are in need of a variety of non-perishable food items for their guests. Kinship Community Food Center engages volunteers and neighborhood residents to end hunger, isolation, and poverty. This project is inspired and designed by 9-year-old Zoe who saw a need in our community and seeks our help to fill the shelves at Kinship. It is the first of hopefully many in KIC’s Junior Leader programs.


Visit houses in your neighborhood with your children to ask for donations to help fill the pantry shelves. Families may also choose to simply donate on their own without going door-to-door. Once you register, we will follow up with a detailed email that will include specific dropoff locations, a list of what general food items to collect, and prepared documents to help set your children up for success.


Our hope is that this event will be led by your children! We wish to give your children the opportunity to feel directly capable of making change in our community. They will have the chance to learn about food insecurity and how they have the power to help. By taking the lead, your children will help provide food to those who cannot afford it themselves.


It is our hope that by participating in this event,  children will learn that even though they are small, they can make a big impact on others, and have fun doing it!
