Our Impact

Feeding the Children of Central Kansas has served children in three school districts and eight counties twice daily for 11 weeks for over 17 years.  Our impact upon food security and to provide convenient, efficient, and broad-based access to the community's children has measurable results.

Over 44 million Americans face hunger each and every day, including 1 in 5 children.

Students who face hunger daily are more likely to score lower on standardized tests, repeat a grade, get sick more often, and be suspended from school

According to Feeding America, 72% of the households served by its affiliated food banks live at or below 100% of the federal poverty line and have a median annual household income of $9,175.

46% of students from low-income households say hunger impacts their performance in school 

The cost of the average meal increased from $2.94 to $3.25 in 2020.

Children who experience food insecurity in kindergarten fall behind and tend to stay behind.
