Food is also donated by the various food drives throughout the year such as the Postal Food Drive, the Boy Scouts Food Drive and other organizations' food drives. Food donations also come from churches, businesses, organizations and individuals. Currently KAIR is distributing over 12,000 pounds of food per month! This need more than doubled in the past year alone! KAIR provides Thanksgiving and Christmas Feast Baskets for over 300 families.
