Project Salina Inc. was founded in 1990 by Jack Parr and Jane Kramer. The need to help support the agencies was significantly noted during the summer months, where the shelves would be bare and empty. This was primarily due to the fact that the significant portion of the support and contributions that the agencies received was during the holiday season, and unfortunately was just not enough to sustain the agencies through a whole calendar year.
Although Project Salina Inc. currently supports five local agencies, that was not always the case. In the beginning the original beneficiaries were The Emergency Aid Food Bank, The Salvation Army, and The Salina Rescue Mission. As the community grew, the need did as well. Later, The Ashby House and Domestic Violence Association of Central Kansas (DVACK) were onboarded as beneficiaries as well.
Project Salina Inc. is a 501 C non-profit organization. Our mission and sole purpose is to feed those in need in the greater Salina Kansas communities.
