Upcoming Events

September is Hunger Action Month as part of Feeding America’s nationwide initiative to use our voices and actions to fight hunger and raise awareness about food insecurity in our community.

Fill a Bag, Feed a Family this Hunger Action Month – All throughout the month of September, we are challenging individuals, businesses and organizations alike to take action and help feed our Kansas neighbors.

Pick up a bag at the Kansas Food Bank that lists our most-needed items, fill it, and return it by the end of the month. Thanks to Blue Cross Blue Shield of Kansas for providing these bags, our goal is to fill 5,000 bags!

Don’t forget to tell your friends, family, and coworkers using #HungerActionMonth and #KFBHAM2023 on your social media!
