KANSAS CITY, Mo. — Two Prairie Village sisters set up a hot cocoa stand Sunday to benefit local food pantries.

But instead of accepting money, Dahlia and Eva Feinberg asked for items not covered by SNAP benefits, such as soap, toothpaste and shampoo.

"So we thought since it is getting cold outside we could sell hot cocoa but instead of money we could get, like, items for it, " Dahlia said.

For one item, visitors received two cups of cocoa.

Those who opted to pay in cash received a cup for $1. Funds generated from the sales will be donated to the Jewish Family Services pantry.
