Meal Kit Update

United Way Meal Kits

United Way of Junction City/Geary County will be adjusting the distribution of Meal Kits starting April 13th, 2020. Because of the difficulty in securing needed items, Meal Kits will only be distributed on each Friday starting the week of April 13th. This will allow staff and volunteers to obtain the needed items for each kit. Meals will still be first come, first served and one meal kit per family. Distribution will still work alongside USD 475 lunch sites.
As of April 9th, we have provided over 2,000 Meal Kits to families in Geary County. We ask that families continue to fill out the survey information as that will allow us to apply for grant funding to ensure we are able to continue the program. We are still focused on providing as many meals as possible, so volunteers and donations are needed. Those who wish to provide support may donate online, in person, or through text. $20 can feed 4 families. If individuals would like to donate items, a wish list can be found at
We appreciate all help given and will do everything in our power to aid the needs of those in Geary County.
Please contact Nichole Mader at or 785-238-2117 for more information.
Monetary donations can be made at, or text UWJCGC to 44-321, or in person at 139 E 8th. Donations can also be sent through the mail at PO Box 567, Junction City KS 66441.
