Believing that all people deserve adequate food, Downtown Outreach is committed to feeding Metro KC's hungry with dignity, respect, and a belief that we are joined as one community.

That's why our entire operation is staffed by volunteers from around the metro area. Corporate groups, churches, schools, families and friends become Downtown Outreach every Saturday.

Our cozy cafeteria is a restored, 19th century church hall. Volunteers prepare and serve nutritious lunches in our licensed commercial kitchen, and distribute bags of groceries. Because we do not ask for proof of income, we don't know all our clients' financial situations. We simply break bread with them and share a welcoming spirit that makes our community a better place.
