We Need Your Help!

Cross-Lines provides a crucial safety net for our neighbors in need in Kansas City and we care deeply about our community, our clients and the more than 1,800 volunteers who help us provide critical services throughout the year. Our organization has been deeply affected by the coronavirus pandemic and we are doing everything we can to continue to feed our neighbors in need. To read our official statement, click here.

As a result of the crisis, our Food Pantry served an astounding 738 people in ONE DAY. To put that in perspective, we normally serve 300 families per MONTH.
