Royals pitcher Ian Kennedy, along with other Kansas City Royals representatives, will serve full barbecue meals to more than 250 men, women and children at City Union Mission on Tuesday, Nov. 13.
Every year, struggling families and individuals in Kansas City look forward to meeting Royals players and enjoying the food and fellowship the team provides. This year, the Royals will serve a delicious meal including pork, potato salad, cheesy corn, beans and soda, plus pie and ice cream for dessert.
“For 13 years, the Royals Charities have been a devoted part of City Union Mission’s ministry,” said Executive Director Dan Doty. “They faithfully and generously give of their time and money to provide this special annual meal for homeless men, women and children staying with us here at the Mission.”
The Royals will be serving the meals from 12:30 to 1:15 p.m. at City Union Mission’s Men’s Center, located at 1108 E. 10th Street. The Royals will also be providing this meal at the Mission’s Family Center, from 12:00 to 12:45 p.m., at 1310 Wabash in Kansas City.
“There’s nothing quite like cheering on the home team to unite the community,” Doty said. “But as the Royals serve our Mission guests, they’re the ones doing the cheering – lifting the spirits of our hungry and hurting neighbors. Truly, every year they knock it out of the park.”
