Fill the Fridge: More than 19,000 pounds of perishable donations collected for Harvesters

KANSAS CITY, Mo. - Thank you, Kansas City, for making the Fill the Fridge perishable food drive in May 2013 a success!

One in five children in this city has food insecurity, meaning they aren't sure if they'll eat tonight.

We collected items like milk, eggs, yogurt and lunch meat at area Price Chopper locations from May 20-24, and with your help, we will help Harvesters fight hunger in Kansas City!
