Holiday Meals


        Volunteer Registration Information

Due to COVID-19, we must do things differently this year (2020)

We WILL NOT be able to cook the holiday meal this year. Through

generous donations, we will provide registered recipients with holiday grocery sacks to cook their holiday meal at home.

With this change this year, we will not need as many volunteers as in past years. We ask all Volunteers to exit when their shift is completed to all the next shift of Volunteers to enter safely.

NOTE: Only a Registered Volunteer will be allowed onsite as we MUST adhere to County & State guidelines for social distancing & wearing of face masks.

Volunteer Registration is open!




How To Help

United Prayer Movement, Inc. is in need of renovating the kitchen space used to prepare our holiday meals. In addition, we are in need of food warmers and other kitchen equipment to meet the growing needs of our requests for meals.


You can support the United Prayer Movement through our United Prayer Movement Fund, which is administered by the Greater Kansas City Community Foundation. Click here for more information about us.

We have an urgent need to replace our freezer - your financial help would allow us to replace the equipment as we are coming into the heaviest time of need for our clients.



Food Pantry

United Prayer Movement, Inc. also provides a year-round Food Pantry located at Pleasant Green Baptist Church through the generous donations received from various organizations in the Kansas City metropolitan area. Our pantry is open to anyone in need.
