EMERGENCY FOOD PANTRY

 

Colonial volunteers operate an Emergency Food Pantry on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 10:30 a.m. – 1:30 p.m. We provide free food to families and individuals in need who reside in 64114, 64131 or 64132 zip codes surrounding our SKC Campus at 9500 Wornall Road. Proof of residence is required and guests may visit the pantry once per month if needed. If you have any questions, please call 816.942.3272.

 

*During the Covid-19 crisis through May 2020 guests may visit two times per month if needed*

 

The Food Pantry entrance is accessed via the circle drive (on the Wornall side of the church). Enter the circle drive on the north side of the church near 95th street. Park on the left side of the drive near the white railing entrance.

 

*During the Covid-19 crisis, we are operating as a drive-through pantry. Please remain in your car, open your trunk and the volunteers will bring the food to you. We will take your registration information through the window. Please do not enter the building as we are trying to keep everyone safe.
