Food Services

I Care works in partnership with Harvesters and DCF to distribute food through the TEFAP program to residents of Shawnee County. This program has federal income guidelines, must be used for home consumption and can not be sold, bartered or used inappropriately. It is a 30 day program, allowing clients to come once a month. This program distributes product obtained through Harvesters at no cost, providing the pantry guests a choice of items available at the time. No guarantee of product availability can be made.

The I Care Food Pantry provides emergency food assistance every 60 days to people in the service area (south of 6th street and east of Kansas Ave. to the county lines). I Care uses a Client Choice model based on the number in each household. This system allows pantry guests to take into consideration their dietary restrictions, like and dislikes and what they may already have on hand when making choices. This program provides a wide range of food items including eggs, margarine, meat and the availability of milk. It also includes a selection of hygiene products.

School Supplies

Every July I Care purchases basic school supplies which are then provided to 12 area schools. The intent is for these supplies to be placed in a central supply area for teachers to use for children that do not have the resources to obtain their own school supplies.
