Turkey Call


Can you provide a holiday meal for a struggling family? 

$35 provides a complete meal for a food-insecure family

Thanksgiving is less than two months away and more families than ever will be struggling to prepare a Thanksgiving meal this year. And like many other grocery items, the price of turkeys is expected to be even higher due to COVID and hurricanes in the South. In the spirit of this giving season, can you help provide a holiday meal for a food-insecure family?  

Coldwater plans to distribute 350 10-12 pound turkeys with side dishes through our Food Pantry to those who need assistance with their holiday meals. We could use your help. 

 A $35.00 donation to Coldwater will cover the cost of an entire holiday meal for a family, including a turkey, mashed potatoes, gravy, stuffing, sweet potatoes, vegetables, cranberry sauce, and corn bread. 

If you can help, you can either send a monetary donation, make a donation online, or bring turkey(s) to our office. Cash/check donations for Coldwater's Turkey Call can be mailed to:


838 SW Blue Parkway

Lee's Summit, MO 64063

 You can make online donations here.

Just click on the Paypal donation button to the left. You do not have to have a Paypal account. It will allow you to process a credit card. 

Please call the office at 816-786-0758 to let us know if you will be dropping off a turkey(s).

For more information, contact our office or director@coldwater.me.

Thank you for supporting Coldwater's mission and helping other families experience the joy of the season. 

Covid19 update - Friends Day Food Pantry

Coldwater will have its Food Pantry open on the second and fourth Saturdays from 10:30 am to 2 p.m. January through October and first and third Saturdays in November and December and by appointment during the week. We are currently giving out carryout meals in place of our sit-down meal. The clothes closet is open on our Friends Day Saturdays, but we are only opening either the kids clothes closet or the adult clothes closet so that we can provide the proper social distancing. Call to find out which one will be open on the date you plan to attend. 

Food distribution will begin at 10:30 am on these two Saturdays each month and procedures will be modified for safety. We also will still deliver groceries to our homebound on these two Saturdays each month.

Our goal is to allow those in need of groceries access to the food pantry but to keep the potential for exposure to illness to a minimum. 

We do ask that, if you are ill or have been exposed to someone who is ill, you do not come on Saturday to receive groceries or volunteer. If you need groceries, please call our office when you are feeling better and we will arrange an appointment for you to receive them as soon as possible. Volunteers can email volunteers@coldwater.me to reschedule for another pantry day.

In an effort to keep everyone visiting the food pantry and all our volunteers safe, we may ask anyone who appears to be sick to exit the building. 

We are sorry for any inconvenience and wish everyone good health.
