Those who rely on Harvesters Community Food Network
in Kansas City were delighted to have Cash America’s support this Holiday Season.
Cash America’s Kansas City coworkers collected shelves of goodies to feed families in need during the holiday season. Coworkers and customers collected three 55-gallon drums of non-perishable food.
“When the driver from Harvesters picked up our food donations, he said, ‘You have the best customers! He told our coworkers that he usually picks up one or less drums from most businesses.’” said District Manager, Roger Iverson.
Harvesters serves a 26-county area around Kansas City, where 382,000 people qualify as food insecure. Food insecurity means a person or household may have food today, but may not have enough for tomorrow or for everyone in the household. Last year, Harvesters distributed 44.5 million pounds of food and provided 37 million meals to those in need.
