Kitchen Restore Project


The Kitchen Restore Project strives to improve the nutrition, health, and quality of life of Johnson County residents through the provision of basic kitchen items to those with minimal or no resources for cooking. We are currently accepting new or gently used basic kitchen items and financial donations from the community and accepting community requests for items. Please refer to our flyer for the items we accept. (See flyer here).

Do you have kitchen items to donate or work with individuals who are in need of these items and could benefit from our project?

Contact us at 913-715-7000 or foodhelp@jocogov.org.
