Though I don't live in the KCK area any more, I did so for 3 years and HELP317 helped me through some tough times...they have not only the basic food needed, but also some surprisingly good extras. There should be more nonprofit groups out there like this one...you can go in to get food and not feel like you're being pitied.

The volunteers who work here are all committed Christians and share Christ's love with all who come in the door.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

The interaction between the clients and the volunteers.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Do whatever is possible to increase the amount of food we have available for giving to the clients.

Would you volunteer for this group again?

Definitely
