It may seem as if the Million Meal Marathon comes together into successful day of service on its own, but it takes a community to make it happen. We depend on the hard work and selfless dedication of our M3 Crew to help the event run smoothly. It requires eager participants, ready to pack as many meals as possible during their shift. We couldn’t do any of this without our Million Meal Marathon sponsors.
Through the generous donations of sponsors we’re able to provide the ingredients that make up our complete meals, and get them into the homes of those that need them the most. It’s simple: the more sponsors we have, the more meals we can pack. Our goal is 1 million meals in one day. We need community partners like you to help us provide the raw materials to get there.

Why should your organization be a Million Meal Marathon sponsor?
- Doing good is good for business: community service attracts key talent and benefits the bottom line.
- Volunteering boosts employee engagement: the hands-on, high-energy Million Meal Marathon experience increases morale and provides a fun service opportunity in an iconic setting.
- You’re helping the hungry at home: we work with local distributors to deliver each and every meal packed at the Million Meal Marathon to food pantries throughout Indiana.
What makes Million Meal Marathon sponsors return year after year?
It’s easy for us to tell you why we think your organization should pack meals with us. However we think our past sponsors say it best:
“During my first experience packing meals with Million Meal Movement, I was blown away by how many people can be fed in such a short amount of time. I immediately wanted to get my City Barbeque team involved and help folks locally here in Indiana. After two years of participating in the Million Meal Marathon, we’re bringing an even bigger team this year, so we can share all the fun we have helping others in our community.”
– Justin Lance, City Barbecue, Inc.
“Strada Education Network has a long history of charitable activities in our community, and hunger relief is a key part of those efforts. It’s been an honor to work closely with Million Meal Movement for four years, providing financial and volunteer support to help Hoosiers get the food they need to live healthy, productive lives.”
William D. Hansen, Strada Education Network President and CEO
