Meal Distribution

In order to support Kansas City families during the pandemic and while we are virtual, the Kauffman School is continuing to prepare and distribute meal boxes free of charge to the community. We are grateful to our vendor partners with Apple Bus and American Food and Vending who have helped make it possible for us to distribute more than 40,000 meals during the pandemic.

Current Meal Distribution Plan:

Our current meal distribution plan includes distributing 5-day meal boxes to all Kauffman families and the Kansas City community daily. 5-day meal boxes will ensure that families only need to visit distribution sites one time per week.

Our distribution sites are open from Monday - Friday from 3:00 - 5:00 PM. (Schedules may be different over breaks or holidays and any adjusted schedules will be shared with families in advance of changes). Families are able to pick up meal boxes for ANY children 18 and under -- children do not have to be current Kauffman School students.

Our pickup locations are:

  • The Kauffman School (6401 Paseo Blvd)
  • Sunrise and N Van Brunt
  • Linnwood and Cleveland Ave
  • 40th and Topping
  • 58th Terr and Swope Pkwy
  • 78th and Lydia
In addition to the distribution sites, Kauffman also runs a door-to-door delivery service for any EMKS families that are unable to make it to a distribution site. Meal boxes are delivered from Monday through Friday, from about 12:00 - 2:00 PM. If you are interested in opting into the door-to-door meal delivery service, or if you have any questions about meal delivery, please call or text 816-832-1883 or email
