Unlike most food pantries, Downtown Outreach allows clients to receive free groceries every week. This means our supply must be well stocked at all times, to meet the needs of our visitors. All our food comes from donors, some farmers, some charitable organizations, but largely from local businesses and individuals.

One of the best ways you can help us fight hunger is by giving food. Organize a canned food drive at your company, church, school or organization. Drop off some non-perishables that you've collected at home. You can even arrange for Downtown Outreach to pick up food donations from you.


To give food, call 816.842.0975 or email info@downtownoutreach.org.
