Did you know 1 in 6 children in the metro area don’t know where their next meal is coming from? The Y is working to fill this gap with our year-round food programs, including the Mobile Pantry Food Distribution Program at the Olathe Family YMCA.

Through a partnership with Harvesters Food Network, Olathe Medical center and KVC Health Systems, The Y has established this program to help ensure that our community has access to fresh, nutritious food.

On the first Wednesday of every month, Harvesters will deliver perishable food to the Olathe Y parking lot where volunteers will organize and distribute the food directly to vehicles from 2-3:30 p.m. The mobile distribution will be open to any community member in need of food and portions are determined by household size. For more information about the program, call 913.393.9622. 


Spread the word to families you know that may benefit from the Mobile Pantry Food Distribution Program. You can also support hunger relief through the Y by volunteering. More than 2,600 volunteers perform countless duties across our organization, ensuring that men, women and children of all ages and from all walks of life have the resources and support they need to be healthy, confident, connected and secure.

Support is also welcomed through donations. You can select the Y center or program nearest you to direct your support.
