The Kansas Food Bank, which feeds thousands of food-insecure children and adults in Kansas, says it needs volunteers for two projects.

Volunteers are needed starting Wednesday to help with a project called Filling the Gap, in which 9,000 children are fed during the two weeks before school starts, according to a prepared statement.

Volunteers will pick up the meals and snacks at the Food Bank Warehouse and deliver them to feeding sites.

Volunteer groups can choose from nine routes, and pick times to fit their schedules, the statement said. Site hosts will meet volunteers at the sites and help unload.

Two teams are needed on Friday, July 25 to put banners up at 14 Filling the Gap meal sites around town.

Volunteers will provide their own transportation and gloves.

Two teams will need to pick up banners on Aug. 8.

Must be able to pull the stakes out of the ground and return stakes and banners to food bank.

For more information, contact LaVeta Noble at the Food Bank at 316-265-3663.
