Help feed Kansas City's pets!
Are you looking for a great teambuilding opportuity for your small group? Sign up for SNKC'S Cave Crew and help sort and prep pet food for local pet owners and rescues!
Groups of up to 6 people (age 16 or older) are invited to meet an SNKC representative at our food storage facility located at Dean's Downtown Underground. We receive large donations of pallets full of dog and cat food that need to be inspected and sorted into categories. Bags of food need to be sorted and neatly stacked, bags are also inspected for damage, expiration dates are checked, and damaged bags are taped.
Cave Crew opportunities are scheduled 1-2 times per month. Heavy lifting up to 50 lbs. is required. Pallet jack experience is a plus! If a group member can not do heavy lifting, they can help sweep floors, label or repair food bags. The underground facility is climate-controlled and there are water fountains and restrooms onsite.
SNKC'S Pet Food Pantry serves up to 200 families annually, providing a supplemental amount of dog and cat food for low-income pet owners in the Kansas City metro area. We also support local rescue groups by sharing our donated food with them. Your group's work makes it far easier for our small staff to quickly access this food and distribute it to those in need. Thank you!
