Second Saturday Food Pantry

GSC now has an option for people that are working and cannot access the pantry during the week! On the second Saturday of each month, beginning in February 2017, the pantry will be open from 9 to 11 a.m. (No other emergency assistance will be available on this day.)

If someone you know needs to access the pantry on this day because they cannot come during the week, please have them call a caseworker at 816-630-2718 to get signed up for this service.

Food Pantry donations needed

The GSC pantry is very low on a number of items and needs your help in restocking the shelves to help the poor. The biggest needs at this time are for soups and canned meats, tuna, peanut butter, all types of canned vegetables, canned fruit, pasta sauces, basically any food items right now. Fresh vegetables from your garden are also welcome. Please consider a donation.
