About Feed the Need:
Since 1987, employees of Johnson County Government have participated in the annual Feed the Need campaign. All donations of food and money benefit ten area food pantries serving eligible Johnson County citizens.
The 10 food pantries include: Blue Valley Multi-Service Center in Overland Park, De Soto Multi-Service Center, Spring Hill Multi-Service Center, North Central Multi-Service Center in Lenexa, Gardner-Edgerton Coordinating Council, Shawnee Community Services, Catholic Charities of Northeast Kansas in Overland Park and Olathe, and Salvation Army and First Christian Church both in Olathe.
Throughout the year, employees from the different county departments and agencies sponsor fund raising events ranging from food drives and chili cook-offs to golf tournaments. The monies raised are received by the Johnson County Charitable Foundation, Inc., a Section 501(c) (3) tax-exempt organization, and in turn, disbursed to the food pantries at the end of year’s campaign, ending each July.
