Joe’s KC Cares was created in 2021 after Joe’s KC BBQ owner Jeff & Joy Stehney looked at a new way to continue the legacy of Joe’s in the KC Community. As a breast cancer survivor, it is important to Joy that cancer patients have basic needs such as transportation and a safe place to stay when receiving treatment so that the focus can be on their health and recovery. As a BBQ Hall of Famer, Jeff has an interest in ensuring that kids have access to healthy and hearty meals despite often having limited resources and options. With a focus on food education and basic culinary skills, families and their kids can learn how to create great tasting foods with basic ingredients.
