What is the Million Meal Marathon?
The Million Meal Marathon is our signature event, and in 2020 we are celebrating (10) years of fighting hunger at home. This year’s Marathon will look a little different due to COVID-19. Instead of a one-day event, the Marathon will bring together smaller groups of people to pack meals to benefit Hoosiers. Beginning in October and continuing into November, it will be a month-long event.
Weekly packs will be held on Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Fridays, with three available shifts daily. Two weekend packs will also be held to accommodate families and small groups. Utilizing social distancing, sanitary guidelines, and personal protective measures, this will be a safe environment for giving back.
All meals packed at the Million Meal Marathon will benefit hungry Hoosiers and will be delivered to food pantries throughout Indiana. We need you to make our 10th Million Meal Marathon a success! Here are four ways to get involved:
Become a Sponsor
The COVID-19 pandemic has placed an incredible burden on Hoosiers. Food banks are seeing more visits than ever, with 40% of clients visiting for the first time. Before COVID-19, nearly 1 million Hoosiers – including 1 in 5 children – struggled with food insecurity. The Marathon will not only feed those in need but unite the local community as we work together to fight hunger at home.
