Because people are hungry and the face of hunger is NOT what our Municipal governments would like to make us believe. We are the Number 1 tourist location in the state of Kansas but 2 miles from the Race Track and Cerner and KC Sporting Arena and Cabelas and Great Wolfe Lodge, people have to choose between hunger and electricity, they have to choose between gas to get to those locations to work below minmum wage jobs and buying milk. Our FILTHY DIRTY SELFISH AND ARROGANT politicians DO NOT WANT people to know that in this affluent neighborhood over 2, 500 people per month need MAJOR FOOD ASSISTANCE. The Cith has cut meals on wheels until it is almost non-existent...we have NOT ASKED THEM FOR ANYTHING!!! Hunger has color, No Zip Code, No preference...It is just hunger! They want us to take this horse and pony showe on the otherside of the railroad tracks and we are saying "WE WILL NOT GO". They should have answered this need long before now! All they had to do was partner up the dirty politics with Harvesters and make it happen. But they thought no one would come for help and instead discovered that inside of 4 months we feed more people in THIS area than any other agency EXCEPT The Catholic Charities. If they want to change the locations, let them do it themselves....I hope they do! Their choice location is EAST 5 miles from where we are located and many of the people who use the service will not or cannot come to the area to pick up. There are already agencies right there on 66th street, doing the same thing. STOP THE MADDNESS!!! Release the truck and stand down with this policial boondogery!!!
Call Mayor Mark Holland 913-573-5010
Call The commissioners office 913-573-5040
Call Harvesters 913-929-3003Tell them to bring the food back to District 5, we deserve food to be in our reach just like those in the NorthEast and the South Side of our community.
