The Kids Summer Food Program is a freshly launched initiative that addresses food insecurity head on for Kansas kids wondering where they'll get their next meal. Did you know that over 185,000 children in Kansas qualify for free or reduced-priced school lunches?

Sadly, only 7% of these kids have access to summer lunch programs. This puts the state of Kansas in last place - 50 out of 50 states - for providing summer food programs to low income youth. This is a major crisis within our great state.

After hearing from families we serve about this food insecurity issue, we knew we needed to step up and help out! The Kids Summer Food Program is providing kids meals where school lunches are not available. This newly established Catholic Charities of Northeast Kansas program is a collaboration with Harvesters, USDA and The Kansas Department of Education.

The Kids Summer Food Program is an equal opportunity provider. #kskids   #foodinsecurity   #catholiccharities

Hope Story #14 is all about Financial Fitness SUCCESS! 14 families comprised our first graduating class of The CommunityAmerica Foundation’s signature program - Family Financial Transformations™.

To date, these 14 families have been able to pay off $23,818 worth of debt - whoa, check it - that is $23,818 of debt PAID OFF, and they have achieved a 48% increase in savings overall since enrolling in the program!

Their hope story is shared in this short video: bit.ly/fftvideo

These graduates has been meeting for 6 months taking financial literacy classes, working with their case managers and meeting as a group to establish and roll out their own financial freedom plans. They now move to the program's next phase where they partner with financial mentors to keep their financial freedom plans moving forward.

Interested in enrolling in the next class? Contact Logan Parks in Johnson County at 913.782.4077 or Isaac Uzcanga in Wyandotte County at 913.621.3445. ‪ #hopestory   #kansascity   #financialfreedom

Father's Day is this Sunday, June 21! You can do your last minute shopping for Dad at AmazonSmile and Amazon will make a donation to us. Double the gift for Dad - a great gift and a donation for our local brothers and sisters in need. How cool is that!

Take a look: amzn.to/1ChJf4j

AmazonSmile is a website operated by Amazon with the same products, prices, and shopping features as Amazon.com. The difference is that when you shop on AmazonSmile, the AmazonSmile Foundation will donate 0.5% of the purchase price of eligible products to Catholic Charities of Northeast Kansas.
