WHAT WE DO

Kim’s Krew delivers over 3000 pounds of groceries each month!

We work one-on-one with our families to help them move toward their goals by gathering information, assessing situations, jointly making a plan, providing assistance, referring them to appropriate existing agencies, providing follow up and REPEATING AS NEEDED. All this takes time. We help people survive and hopefully stabilize as they go through this process.

​Clients are strongly encouraged to follow the plan they have set up before contacting us again. This may include contacting WIC, MOW PLUS, SVdP, recertifying for food stamps as soon as possibly because of the common delays to get recertified, or contacting other agencies to help with utilities or housing.  Most agencies, like Kim’s Krew, are stretched thin during these hard times.

Kim's Krew's orders of groceries and MORE usually range from 4 to 14 boxes of supplies for the month.

We take orders based on the family’s health, ability to store and cook food, and what they will use. Along with the groceries, families can request toothpaste, toothbrushes, shampoo, deodorant, soap, tampons, pads, baby wipes, adult diapers, laundry and dish detergent, disinfectant, cleaning liquid, linens, towels, and kitchen items and small cooking appliances.  These personal hygiene and household cleaning items cannot be purchased with Food Stamps.

OUR CLIENTS

The people we focus on have met with unfortunate life circumstances, some of Manatee County's most vulnerable.We help people that have a major medical situation (86 % of clients) and/or do not have transportation (71% of clients) or have other types of emergency situations and have trouble accessing drive up type food pantries.

We provide a much-needed service to the people of Manatee County. This is evidenced by referrals from other agencies such as Manatee County Food Bank Meals on Wheels Plus, Manatee County Elderly Services, Red Cross, Medical Social Workers, Insurance Companies, Churches with groups to help the poor, an investigator from DCF, Mothers helping Mothers, Nurses at First 1000 Days, Saint Vincent DePaul Societies both at local churches and the multi-county SVdP CARES Program, Center Stone, and more.

Over 25% of our clients live in the woods, in their car, temporarily in motels, or they are couch surfing.

Thanks to grants from Charles and Margery  Barancik Foundation and The Church of Jesus Christ of Later-day Saints, Kim’s Krew has been able  to increase the average  number of families served each month from 40 families 100 families per months!
