Having distributed more than one million meals since March 2020, the Northland’s House of Hope has a compelling mission – to come alongside those in need to help move the hurting into health.

That mission drew nearly 40 members of the Curry team to volunteer this summer for one of the organization’s Hope Tote Builds to prep hundreds of bags of nutritious groceries to give away at its Family Friday – the monthly drive-through grocery distribution at 21 Design Drive of non-perishable items, bread and produce.

“House of Hope is a fantastic organization,” said Ellen Todd, Curry president and CEO. “It is clear that the need continues in our area and we’re glad to support this amazing effort.”

It wasn’t the first time the Curry team has volunteered with House of Hope. It’s fun to come together as a team, do good for others while helping to meet a critical need.

Many have expressed surprise that families in the northland are food insecure. House of Hope cites a Living Wage Calculator developed by Dr. Amy K. Glasmeier and MIT which estimates the cost of living in a county or a larger metropolitan area based on typical expenses. The nonprofit included in one of its Facebook posts data showing that nearly half of Kansas City, Missouri, workers do not earn more than $20 an hour, which is less that what is needed to provide for a family with two or more dependents.
