The Whole Foods Food Donation Program has potentially been affected by the following recalled items, as there is the risk that these items (365 Brand Beef Broth and Chicken Broth) may spoil prematurely prior to the dates listed on the broth cartons, due to microbial contamination:
Please locate and dispose of any of the potentially-affected products listed above, that may still be in your charity’s possession.
These recalled broths are no longer being sold in Whole Foods stores, so this particular recall alert does not apply to any future chicken broth or beef broth that may be donated.
Join us Saturday, September 30th for a car & motorcycle show at Wheels for Meals fundraiser to benefit New Hope Food Pantry. Peruse the cars from 10am-noon and you can listen to the Teresa Deaton Band live and be sure to stop by the vendor booths where the Steven Kohnle Farmer's Agent will be handing out FREE cotton candy!
Family games and prizes will be available for tickets and a couple of free children's activities will be available for play. A children's raffle will be held with drawings starting at 11am. At 2pm, the Mice Races will start and at 4pm is the Texas Hold 'Em Tournament.
At the Vendor Booth area, our highlighted Vendor is Farmhouse Decor and More (see pictures below). One of our many vendors at Wheels for Meals that you can shop cash and carry. All items are made locally and be sure to order cinnamon rolls to go before they're all gone!
We are in need of volunteers for the day so if you are interested in helping for a 3 hour shift (7am-7pm shifts), please contact Caylon at 913-782-0955.
The next 3 Cans & a Good Time Food Drive is set for Wednesday, 9/20/23 at 5pm. It will be held again at the Overland Park ACA club, 6840 W 105th St. and as always your donation of food covers your food and adult beverages and entertainment. Martin Taggart, Team Real Estate, is the brain child behind this amazingly fun event as a way for local businesses to demonstrate their willingness to take care of the community. It has been wildly successful at raising food to stock the shelves here, and every 8 weeks they have committed to throwing another event bigger than the last.
"3 Cans & a Good Time" is just that! Caylon Umphrey, NHFP Executive Director, says "it's the most fun event I attend!" Though the ACA is a private club, they open this event to the public as a way to come alongside the community for a good cause, but having fun while doing it. "Every time they throw another 3 Cans, I invite tons of people simply to come to the party with a cause!"
Be our guest and let us know if you win a prize! About 10 $25 gift cards often are given out to prize winners selected from attendees. Food is provided by Chris Cakes, so come hungry & ready for flippin' flap jacks!
WOW! We have some exciting things going on around New Hope Food Pantry! We have teamed up with the Valley of the Northeast Scottish Rite to try to raise money so both organizations can help children and families in need of food and medical care. The fundraiser will have a car & motorcycle show with prizes and swag bags for the first 50 people to pre-register their vehicles. There will be breakfast & lunch served through a snack bar & live music by the Teresa Deaton Band sponsored by Team Real Estate of Overland Park, KS. Games with prizes for kids will be available to play and win, as well as a kids raffle table to win prizes just for them!
After the car & motorcycle show, come inside for a casino style party with mice races, roulette & a Texas Hold Em tournament! The tournament will have a $200 valued first prize, $100 value for second place and a $50 prize for 3rd place. We will of course have food and adult beverages, as well as a silent auction & vendor booths. Pass the word to everyone to encourage attendance as the more people who come, the more money our organizations will make!
We've always said it takes a village, and we have been really fortunate that many local businesses have given their time, money and attention to helping us reach our goal! Already Max Motors has signed on as the event sponsor, Rawhide Harley Davidson of Olathe, KS signed on as a Gold Sponsor & Independent Amsoil Dealer, Tom Gorby & Shore Tire of Overland Park have signed on as Nickel Sponsors! Please support their businesses since they care enough to help support the community!
We are gathering school supplies to start handing out soon. If you have any school supplies you would like to donate to families in need, please bring them and drop them at New Hope Food Pantry from Monday-Friday, 8:30am-6pm. All donations, including non-food donations are to be dropped at the double car garage attached on the north side of the building.
Thank you for continuing to meet the needs of OUR COMMUNITY!
Here's a brief list of typical items needed for "Back-to-School"
Please be in prayer for the children when going back to school. Be in prayer that the children's needs are being met while out of school, because children that come from families in need can be in jeopardy of going hungry due to not getting breakfast or lunch served at school.

The ACA (American Club Association) is once again coming together to open their private club for a public event to give back to the community!

Arnold Moving, PuroClean, & exp Realty at ACA located at 6840 W 105th St, Overland Park, KS 66212.
Light bites & adult beverages are served and many prizes are given out and you have to bring at least 3 cans of food to get in. This event is held every 8 weeks, however this one should be a great one to come to as they've set the goal at 1000 lbs. of food and hope for the largest crowd yet! The after party will have free live music outside next to the ACA club.
This is also a great event for business owners and sales people to attend as a large networking event will also be taking place as we nosh on delicious food provided by Malaura Catering. Check out the promotional video we put together with footage from the last event promoting the next one. We hope to see you...especially with a lot of canned goods with you!
Every week, 1 or 2 people have been emptying that 1 cluttered drawer that everyone has which contains all the hotel soaps, shampoos, lotions & other various sample products we don't use but hang onto in an effort not to waste. Maybe it's the thought of zombie apocalypse that we think "just maybe I'll use all these products some day in case of emergency" that drives us to collect and hang onto toiletries we didn't want when we were given.
Well, we need those! Maybe you've been hanging onto to them by God's divine grace! If you're ready to reclaim your drawer (or closet shelf) and help God's people, grab a rather large sack and gather any unused toiletries you've been hanging onto and drop them by the pantry from 8:30am-6pm. Other items around your house we desire are: used Walmart type sacks, rubber bands, binder clips, new items unwanted, stuffed animals and any unused gift cards you don't think you'll ever use.
In case of Zombie apocalypse, feel free to come get assistance. (That's a joke, we don't believe in zombie's.)
We are looking for more plastic Easter eggs to be donated as we've started giving them out this week and most people have said "yes, they celebrate Easter" and want the eggs. We give them a bag of candy, and even have baskets on hand if the family needs them...we could use some more baskets donated, also.
It's ok if you're plastic eggs are used, as even the new packs, we are breaking them down into bags of 8 to give more families some eggs. We average about 650 families a month, so we need to have a bag of eggs to offer to all. Huge thank you to community members who have helped out already. Someone sent us eggs through Amazon that heard we needed them. What a great community of helpers we have!
If you have eggs to donate, please drop them by the pantry anytime between 8:30am-6pm any week day. We are located inside the double car garage at New Hope Presbyterian Church that sits on the corner of 133rd St & Black Bob Rd in Olathe, KS. Since opening in April of 2011 have served thousands of families over the years. In 2022 almost 30,000 people were served,
SAVE THE DATE! Our next 3 Cans & A Good Time Happiest Hour networking event and FOOD DRIVE is coming up in just 3 short weeks! Join us on April 5th at 5pm to make connections and raise food for New Hope Food Pantry! We're going after a new goal of 1000 POUNDS so we need YOUR help!
RSVP now at https://www.facebook.com/events/2292254607613853. (Not required but helpful.)
Light bites, free drinks, and door prizes will be provided. A big thanks goes out to Fiorella's for providing the light bites! More sponsor announcements coming SOON!

Food insecurity occurs when a household experiences lack of access to enough food for an active, healthy life.Food insecurity is a national problem. It affects all states, not just rural areas. Food insecurity can affect people of all ages and races.
Food insecurity is one of the most important issues facing our nation today because it has so many consequences for families, communities and whole economies that rely on healthy food systems to feed people who need more than what they have access to at any given time.
The U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) defines food insecurity as a limited or unpredictable availability of nutritionally adequate and safe foods or limited or uncertain ability to acquire acceptable foods in socially acceptable ways because of economic hardship, lack of opportunity, or other reason. The U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) defines food insecurity as a limited or unpredictable availability of nutritionally adequate and safe foods or limited or uncertain ability to acquire acceptable foods in socially acceptable ways because of economic hardship, lack of opportunity, or other reason. Food insecurity is a problem that affects all states, not just rural areas.
The USDA reports that more than 12 million Americans experience hunger every day--and over one-third don't get enough nutritious food at home to keep them healthy--and nearly half are children under age 18 who rely on school meals for their meals.
Food insecurity affects millions of Americans every day, but it is a problem that affects all states, not just rural areas. Food insecurity affects millions of Americans every day, but it is a problem that affects all states, not just rural areas. Food insecurity is defined as having limited or uncertain access to nutritious food due to a lack of money and other resources. The USDA defines "limited" as being unable to buy enough food at least once per month and "uncertain" as not knowing exactly how much food one needs each day (or week). In 2016, about 12 million people were considered to be food insecure in the U.S., including 3 million children under age 18 who were considered "very low-income."
Food insecurity does not discriminate based on race, gender or ethnicity; it affects everyone regardless of background or income level--and this can lead directly into health problems later down the road if left untreated for too long!
Children are more likely than adults to be affected by food insecurity. Children are more vulnerable than adults to food insecurity. According to the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA), children are at risk for hunger because they have limited access to resources and less control over their lives than adults do. They also face additional challenges when it comes to accessing nutritious food, such as grocery stores that don't sell fresh produce or schools without kitchens where students can prepare their own meals. In addition, many parents lack skills necessary for cooking healthy meals on a regular basis--and may rely on fast food restaurants instead because they know how much healthier those options are than what's available in convenience stores or fast-food chains
Children experiencing hunger may not even realize they need help until they're already hungry enough that it affects other aspects of their lives
The American Club Association of Overland Park is holding another 3 Cans Small Business Networking event that is open to the public, with a 3 Can minimum donation to the New Hope Food Pantry. This will be the third event in which the first two events have raised approximately 1300 lbs. of canned goods. Wow! Huge thank you to this private club for helping the community and planning and hosting a fun evening of networking, prizes, food and drinks.

Last Thursday, we were pleased to host the Olathe Chamber of Commerce Coffee networking event in Fellowship Hall. It was a great opportunity to share the work that our 100+ volunteers and neighborhood partners are doing to serve the food insecure in Johnson, Wyandotte, and Miami counties. Thanks to Kathy Stamm, Julie Joeckel, Linda Tiller, Linda Hauck, Tom Gorby, Rick Chambers, Todd Patterson, Jim Linker, and Michele Ross for supporting the event with over 60 local business leaders.
