KANSAS CITY, Mo. — On Wednesday morning, from 10 a.m. to noon, Victorious Life Curch, located on 34th Street and The Paseo, will be holding a drive-thru food bank to help families in need.

The church teamed up with Harvesters, volunteers and Kansas City, Missouri police to provide free grocery and toiletry items to help those experiencing a difficult time with COVID-19 closures.

"People are losing jobs, people are losing hope," Exec. Pastor of Operations, Christopher Collier said. "We want to be a church , a beacon of hope, a beacon of light and just encourage the people that God cares and we care about their well being."

More than 200 bags will be handed out to families. Church leaders say it's important to love your neighbors.

"They need to know that the church is not just about a four wall confinement of ministry and fellowship," Collier said. "The people need to know that the church believes beyond the four walls."

"How do you keep people realizing that there is hope for tomorrow?" Bishop Mark Tolbert asked. "And we don’t know when this is going to end. We want everyone to practice social distancing, but we also have to be socially responsible."

Church leaders said the only requirement is that families stay in their car as they pull up for the drive-thru food bank.
