KENNETT SQUARE — Kennett Area Community Service (KACS), home of the Kennett Food Cupboard, is holding an Open House to celebrate the Grand Opening of the new KACS Resource Center at 138 West Cedar Street, Kennett Square.

The event on Wednesday, June 15th from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m is open to the public and will showcase the newly renovated center.  There will be tours of the facility and light refreshments.  A ribbon cutting at 6:00 will be followed by a brief program.

The multi-use facility is focused on service delivery of the KACS programs and several partner social service agencies with the goal of helping individuals and families secure resources and end poverty in Southern Chester County.  The KACS Resource Center will house the KACS Emergency Assistance program, new sustainability programs, bathing and laundry facilities for those experiencing homelessness, as well as administrative offices.  This exciting new step will also increase food storage space in the existing Kennett Food Cupboard facility. Additionally, 300 square feet of raised bed gardens to provide both educational opportunities and fresh produce to the Food Cupboard.

The Resource Center was made a reality through local community partners. Join us as we celebrate the new opportunities for families and individuals to build bridges out of poverty!
