What We Do

Kiwanis Chili Feast

For almost 30 years, on the second Friday in February, our Kiwanis Club has cooked and served Kiwanis Chili. This project provides the funding for our projects. In 2023 we cooked 130 gallons and served almost 1750 meals. Over 75% of our sales are ‘Deliveries’. Please call or email us using the links in the flyer above to schedule your delivery of at least 10 meals.

Key Club Scholarships

Using money from the Kiwanis Chili Feast, our Club provides at least $5,000 in Scholarships to senior members of the Key Clubs that we sponsor.

Key Club Sponsorships

Our Kiwanis club sponsors 4 Key Clubs. The high school members of these clubs are very active in our community supporting activities like Special Olympics. The Clubs we sponsor are located at:

  • Porters Chapel Academy
  • River City Early College High School
  • Vicksburg Catholic School
  • Vicksburg High School

Cedars Head Start Planter Boxes

Our Club teamed up with Home Depot to provide Planter Boxes for Cedars Head Start. Home Depot donated the materials and Kiwanians provided the labor. The children at the Head Start helped plant flowers and vegetables that they were able to watch grow and then they enjoyed sampling the fresh food during the summer.

Clergy Appreciation Day

Our Spiritual Aims Committee organizes a meeting each year to recognize and honor the local Clergy for the work they do to help our community.
