In the past few weeks, there has been an incredible increase in need and we anticipate it will continue to rise as we navigate through this COVID-19 crisis. We need your support to be able to respond to that need. COVID-19 is creating new needs while putting enormous financial pressure on all nonprofits. Contributions make it possible for KACS to continue providing much-needed help during this crisis.
As you may know, prior to COVID-19, we had 550 families (which includes 900 children) visit the Food Cupboard each month for support. Needless to say, these numbers increase weekly and many families that have never needed KACS before are coming to us seeking help. Please support the work we do by clicking the button below to make an online donation. Checks can be mailed to: Kennett Area Community Service P.O. Box 1025 Kennett Square, PA 19348
We are excited to announce our NEW Food Donation location! Beginning Tuesday, July 7th non-perishable food donations can be dropped off at the New Garden Township office located at 299 Starr Road in Landenberg, PA.

Small shaped pasta (elbow and bow) 4. Dried beans 5. Canned tuna 6. Cereal 7. Peanut butter 8. Jelly (strawberry and grape) 9. Canned fruit 10. Soup/instant noodles 11. Plain tomatio sauce 12. Nescafe 13. Mayo/ketchup/mustard/ valentina 14. Flour/maseca 15. Cooking oil
We love our local gardeners and understand the eagerness to share summer harvests! However, as we do not have volunteers on-site at the Food Cupboard, we are unable to accept unscheduled drop-offs of produce. Please contact us at 610-925-3556 if you would like to inquire about scheduling a produce donation. A decision to schedule will be made on the need for the particular item(s) and staff availability. Please be patient as we will be unable to accommodate everyone. Thank you!
Opportunities to volunteer can be arranged with Britton Elwood. Please click below to email her.
