Culturally appropriate food boxes are available at Wyandotte Co. community events

KANSAS CITY, Kan. – The underserved in the Wyandotte County area have new opportunities.

There are now culturally-adapted food boxes. Boxes will be available at Neighborhood Clinic events in Wyandotte County.

The need was identified due to the diverse community and the fact that up to 21,000 people living in the area experience food security.

The boxes are a pilot program through a partnership between the Department of Health, Harvesters and Aetna Better Health of Kansas. Individuals receiving the boxes will be asked to complete a survey to fill in the need.

“These culturally appropriate food boxes will help the people of Wyandotte County not only feed their families, but also have familiar food that they know how to make and we hope their families will enjoy,” says Ambur Banner, Acting Director of the UGPHD.

Items included in the food boxes:

  • Field A
    • Diced tomatoes
    • Corn
    • Corn Masa
    • rice
    • pinto beans
    • Sliced ​​jalapenos
    • lenses

    • 2 cans of green beans

Items provided may vary slightly from the above lists depending on availability. All replacement items are similar to those listed.

The program plans to distribute more than 450 boxes of food in March and April.
