KC food pantries struggle with increasing demand, stigma

KANSAS CITY, Mo. - As the economic fallout from the coronavirus pandemic continues, food pantries across the Kansas City area are either struggling to keep up with the overwhelming demand and eliminate the stigma of asking for help. Bethel Neighborhood Center in Kansas City, Kansas, served six times as many households in May as it did in March.

Food pantries struggle has nothing to do with the virus, it has to do with the people who donate getting slapped in the face when they try to help others. I know of people who are abusing pantries and others who instead of being thankful have gone out and torn up innocent people's property even putting them out of business. I have changed the way I give and I will be in charge of who the food and money goes to!

Why is it so many of the cars I see in line for free food are better and newer than mine and most of my neighbors. Maybe too many getting food who shouldn't be.

I saw the same thing. No wonder they don’t have money for food when they buy a fifty thousand dollar truck
