The Million Meal Marathon is our signature event, and this year we’re celebrating 11 years of fighting hunger at home. Each fall, thousands of Hoosiers come together in this volunteer opportunity to pack meals for our fellow Hoosiers who need a helping hand. New this year: the Million Meal Marathon Tip-Off with the Indiana Pacers and Indiana Fever! This very special meal packing event will take place at Indiana Farmers Coliseum on Thursday, October 14 from 9 am – 7:30 pm. Starting October 26 through November 19, the Marathon will bring together smaller groups for weekly meal packing events at our Warehouse. Two weekend packs will also be held to accommodate families and small groups.
Fight hunger at home.
The COVID-19 pandemic continues to place an incredible burden on Hoosiers. Food insecurity increased by 53% in Indiana last year, and it’s estimated that nearly 1 in 5 Hoosier kids experience hunger. Imagine an Indiana where everyone can hunger for something greater than their next meal. With your help at the Million Meal Marathon, this can be our reality.
