About Our Mission
Over 350,000 people in Kansas City don’t know where their next meal is coming from. At Cable Dahmer, our goal is to provide one million meals for families in need right here in our community. We want to give back to the community that has supported us for over half of a century. That’s why we’ve teamed up with Harvesters Community Food Network to help feed families in the Kansas City metro area.

Children are often among those most in need of food.
