Johnson County Kansas food pantries.

Food pantries operate across Johnson County Kansas. Residents, regardless of their background, income, or race, can turn to one of these centers if they are facing a difficult period. Items can help feed a family for a number of days, and most pantries can also coordinate and offer other assistance such as clothing, social services, and maybe even funds for paying bills.

The Johnson County Kansas food pantries rely on donations from families and individuals across the region. So if you have some surplus items, groceries or foodstuffs to donate, please do so. All donated items go directly towards helping the needy in the community.

During the holiday seasons of Easter, Thanksgiving, and Christmas the locations offer special food assistance programs and free meals. Sometimes even gifts or winter coats can be provided during the winter and Christmas time. Some charities and non-profits provide summer meals, breakfast, or lunches to students and families who are out of school.
