Everyone needs nutritious food to thrive. Yet, tens of millions of people in the United States — including Kansans and their families — face hunger.
This September, join the Kansas Food Bank in the movement to end hunger. Your voice, actions, and commitment will help ensure every community has the food they need to thrive. Because when people are fed, futures are nourished.
Every action — big or small — is one step closer to an America where no one is hungry. Join the nationwide movement to end hunger by donating, volunteering, advocating, or one of the Hunger Action Month activities mentioned below.
The entire month of September, pick up a bag from the Kansas Food Bank, fill it, and return it to feed your neighbors. This campaign is for the entire community – individuals, businesses, civic groups and more. Anyone can participate. Blue Cross Blue Shield has sponsored the cost of the bags. We would love to have 5,000 bags filled!
Orange is the official color of hunger relief, so head to our Bonfire store to snag your exclusive Kansas Food Bank Hunger Action Month merchandise! Proceeds from shirt sales will be used to provide meals for Kansans experiencing food insecurity. Wear your orange on Hunger Action Day, Friday September 15th to show your support.
Supporting the Kansas Food Bank monetarily is one of the most impactful ways you can support the work we do. Because of the buying power we have, your dollar gets stretched even further to provide much-needed nourishment to Kansans.
