September is Hunger Action Month, when we ask everyone in Kansas to take action to fight hunger in their community, all month long. Hunger Action Month is your opportunity to join a movement that has a real and lasting impact on our effort to feed more Kansas than ever before. Whether it’s by advocating and raising awareness, making donations, or volunteering, you can find the way that’s right for you to make a difference during Hunger Action Month.

We invite you to join us for an interactive day at the Kansas Food Bank on September 9th.  It will be a great chance to come down to the warehouse and get a “hands on” approach to fight hunger.  Our friends from KWCH 12, KSCW – the Crew and Journal Broadcast group will be here throughout the day as well doing their part to raise awareness of hunger in our state.

We will have different volunteer stations set up between the hours of 7:00 a.m. and 6:00 p.m. in two hour time blocks, so there will be plenty of time to choose when you can come down and help out.  We will be packing Food 4 Kids backpacks, assembling Laid Off Worker and Senior Boxes, packing Mobile Pantry boxes and sorting salvage.  There is always plenty of work that needs to be done around the warehouse and this is your chance to  see the inner-working of what your Kansas Food Bank does each and every day.

Volunteer Schedule:
7:00 a.m. to 9:00 a.m.
10:00 a.m. to noon
1:00 pm to 3:00 p.m.
4:00 pm to 6:00 p.m.

Of course, if you just want to come and take a tour of the warehouse to see what all happens in this huge building, we will be happy to show you our space.  It is really quite amazing to see the big freezer and it is quite cold in there too!

For information on how you can help and be a part of this fun filled day, contact debikreutzman@kansasfoodbank.org and schedule your time now.  Invite your friends, family and co-workers to join you, the more the merrier!

What better way to kick off “Hunger Action Month” than being a part of our team!  You CAN make a difference!
