13th Annual Million Meal Marathon: October 26, 2023

Million Meal Marathon


What is the Million Meal Marathon?

The Million Meal Marathon is our signature event, and in 2023 we’ll celebrate 13 years of fighting hunger at home. The Million Meal Marathon will feed those in need and unite the local community as we work together to fight hunger at home.

Join us and our partner, Pacers Sports & Entertainment, at Gainbridge Fieldhouse in downtown Indianapolis on Thursday, October 26, 2023 to make a difference for Hoosiers in need.

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

Become a Sponsor

Rising food, gas, and housing costs have placed an incredible burden on Hoosiers. Food banks are continuing to see more visits than ever. Nearly 1 in 4 children in Indiana don’t know where they’ll get their next meal. Your participation ensures that Hoosier kids and families can hunger for something greater than their next meal.

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

Fight hunger at home on the court at Gainbridge Fieldhouse! Individuals and families/small groups are invited to pack meals during the afternoon and evening shifts. All participants will receive a free commemorative t-shirt!

Volunteer With Us

Our non-packing volunteers, affectionately known as the Helping Hands, 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. We have multiple volunteer opportunities available the week of the Marathon. 


Support Us With a Donation

We understand that not everyone is able to volunteer in person this year. You can still help us fight hunger at home. With your support, we’ll deliver meals to your Indiana neighbors who struggle with hunger. Every $1 you give provides 2 meals. Donate today!
