The Giving Hope Food Pantry KC

Giving Hope-KC opened its doors in March 2018 after Premier Pre-Owned automobiles in Kansas City transformed a building on their property into a Food Pantry. Giving Hope is a drive-through pantry providing approximately 600 households a month with much-needed food. Our goal is to serve the people in Wyandotte County and surrounding communities with not only nutritional meals but respect and dignity that everyone deserves. A Compassionate Ministry Partnership of Premier/Victory Dealerships and Village West Family Church Giving Hope KC is a tax-exempt, not-for-profit compassion ministry that serves Kansas City and a large portion of the Wyandotte County. Throughout this target area, approximately 27,000 people are considered to be food insecure. Statistics further illuminate that of those populating that category, 27% of those are children and only 46% qualify for funded assistance programs. Giving Hope KC is a faith based partnership of Premier/Victory Auto Dealerships that is intent on meeting the most basic needs in our community. Twice weekly, this volunteer based operation distributes food that has been provided by association with partners such as Harvesters, or through concentrated donation efforts. By establishing a local outreach point to initially address the need of hunger, but gradually develop into a place of other resource and development, hope will no longer be postponed or held back from those who desperately need both resources and the assurance of a brighter tomorrow.

With each vehicle sold in any of the 8 Victory/Premier Auto Dealerships in the Kansas City area, a portion of the proceeds are set aside for the Hope Fund. These funds allow Giving Hope KC to purchase needed food and supplies, as well as host free events and giveaways.

Victory Auto Group Technician Development Program Offers State-of-the-Art Facilities and operates on the highest standards. We have more than 300 service bays that are equipped with the latest OEM professional-grade technologies.
