Welcome to North Kent Connect

Vision: A community of thriving people.

Mission: North Kent Connect is a Christian organization committed to improving the lives of all people in northern Kent County by providing access to basic needs and promoting economic independence.

Healthy Food Policy

Fresh vegetables When you walk into The Market (formerly the Food Pantry) you won’t see shelves of macaroni and cheese, Pop-Tarts, Fruit Loops, and Ramen noodles. Instead you’ll see a counter of fresh produce and shelves of whole grain pasta, dried beans, and low-sugar cereals. 

Learn more about the Healthy Food Policy by visiting our Healthy Food Initiatives page and help us fill our Market with fresh, nutritious food by hosting a food drive

Donation Hours

Did you know that North Kent Connect accepts clothing in any condition? The unusable clothing is sold for rags; proceeds are used to buy needed food items such as milk and eggs. The wire and metal are recycled. We are committed to keeping items out of the landfill. NKC is green! We accept donations through the front door Monday - Thursday, 8:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m.
