Justice

Jacob’s Well is committed to meeting the needs of justice in our community, our city, and around the world. Our local outreach is focused on the Argentine community in Kansas City and our global outreach is focused upon the construction and development of Asilong Christian High School in Pokot, Kenya.

LOCAL

Jacob’s Well has partnered with the Asilong community in West Pokot, Africa.

MONTHLY FOOD DISTRIBUTION

Our Harvester’s food distribution events happens on the second Wednesday of the month from 1PM-4:30PM, and we are always looking for volunteers to participate. These events are very important for many food vulnerable people in Argentine. This is a drive-up service where pre-portioned food is placed in clients’ vehicles after it has been sorted into individual portions for each family.
