Combating hunger through community food packing events.



YF Neighborhood offers hands-on ways to make life better for all our neighbors. A key component of that is fighting food insecurity. Many of our neighbors struggle with having enough to eat. 

More than a decade ago, Youthfront’s Something to Eat™ program began as a way for youth to fight hunger in a hands-on way and learn about the issues of food insecurity. Today, millions of meals later, Something to Eat™ continues to provide tangible ways for kids and their families to help those facing hunger.

Distributing fresh food


Through a partnership with Harvesters, Youthfront’s Something to Eat™ helps distribute fresh produce and perishables along with shelf-stable goods to individuals and families in need. Volunteers gather to assist in sorting and distributing the food each month in the parking lot of the Franklin Center in Kansas City, KS. This is a perfect volunteer opportunity for families, and Youthfront’s grandparent ministry plays a central role in providing needed volunteer help each month. 

To be notified of the next month’s distribution day and volunteer shifts available, please opt in to our food distribution volunteer email list HERE.

Packing shelf-stable meals

Families, small groups, youth groups, churches and businesses have all made a difference packing meals with YF Neighborhood’s Something to Eat™! The process is a fun way for kids or adults to work together and know they’re making a real difference for our neighbors. The packaged shelf-stable meals are distributed to our food pantry partners.

Volunteers are the backbone of our program, and donors make the meals possible.
