11th Annual Million Meal Marathon: October 14 - November 19, 2021

Million Meal Marathon

Million Meal Marathon

 

What is the Million Meal Marathon?

The Million Meal Marathon is our signature event, and in 2021 we’ll celebrate 11 years of fighting hunger at home. This year’s Marathon will remain a little different due to COVID-19. In addition to the Tip-Off with the Indiana Pacers at Indiana Farmer’s Coliseum, the Marathon will bring together smaller groups to pack meals to benefit Hoosiers. Fight hunger at home with us beginning October 14th through November 19th!

All meals packed at the Million Meal Marathon benefit hungry Hoosiers and are delivered to food pantries throughout Indiana. We need you to make our 11th Million Meal Marathon a success! Here are four ways to get involved:

Become a Sponsor

The pandemic and its aftermath have placed an incredible burden on Hoosiers. Food banks are continuing to see more visits than ever. Due to COVID, the number of those in need has increased dramatically – nearly 1 in 4 children in Indiana don’t know where they’ll get their next meal. The Marathon will not only feed those in need but unite the local community as we work together to fight hunger at home.

Why should you become a Million Meal Marathon sponsor?

  • You’ll engage employees, family, friends, and youth in a meaningful, hands-on, high-energy volunteer experience.
  • You’ll give your company a visible presence in the community.
  • You’ll help the hungry at home.
  • You’ll enjoy special recognition and benefits depending on your sponsorship level.

We have a variety of sponsorship opportunities depending on your needs and budget. For more information on becoming a partner and the benefits included, call us at 317-863-8655 or email us at info@millionmealmovement.org.

Pack Meals With Us

There are many opportunities to pack meals during the Million Meal Marathon! Join us at the Marathon Tip-Off with the Indiana Pacers. We’re offering (3) 2-hour packing shifts at Indiana Farmers Coliseum.

Beginning October 26 through November 19, we’re hosting smaller packs at our Indianapolis Warehouse. Check out our Calendar to view dates and register for a pack.

Volunteer With Us

Our non-packing volunteers, affectionately known as the M3 Crew, help us run the Million Meal Marathon, making it possible for participants to pack one million meals in one day. This positive, hands-on experience is family-friendly and engaging. There is a job for everyone and we welcome families serving together. Check out our Calendar to view dates and sign up for a volunteer shift.

Support Us With a Donation

We understand that not everyone is able to volunteer in person this year. You can still help us feed Hoosiers that have been affected by the COVID-19 pandemic. With your support, we’ll deliver meals to your Indiana neighbors who struggle with hunger. Every $1 you give provides 3 meals. Donate today!
