Free breakfast meals for those in need

If you are looking for a meal in the morning, come to the new winter shelter at 2220 E. 21st Street where we will offer free breakfast bags for those in need. 

We’re honored to partner with the City of Wichita and HumanKind Ministries on this community collaboration. The winter shelter and breakfast bags will be available from Friday, December 1, 2023, through mid-March 2024.

With this exciting new opportunity comes increased needs. Please consider donating items for the breakfast bags and/or volunteering to help deliver bags to the shelter. 

You can:

  • Volunteer to fill or transport breakfast bags.
  • Donate the following items
    • Pop-Tarts
    • Individual apple sauce cups
    • Peanut butter crackers
    • Coffee and granola bars 

Volunteer or donate today! Contact: Rachel at 316-665-8616 or

Please note: We WILL NOT provide breakfast at Wichita’s Breakthrough location at 1010 N. Main this winter. We encourage those in need to take advantage of the breakfasts, as well as two other meals that will be served each day at the 21st Street shelter.
