KC Can Compost for the Greener Good!
In 2019, Shelter KC kicked off a joint-venture alongside KC Can Compost, an innovative social and environmental enterprise. With a vision of empowering people and preserving the planet, KC Can Compost educates and employs once-homeless men and women, at a living wage, to collect food and organic waste from local area kitchens and businesses to divert it from the landfill for composting.
Homeless clients at Shelter KC who are ready to apply the work-readiness skills gained through educational services can inquire about training and work with KC Can Compost.
The partnership between the two nonprofit organizations strengthens a commitment to bring hope and opportunity to those who are homeless while simultaneously providing Kansas City businesses with a much-needed service that helps all of us protect and care for our environment.
