Thousands join forces for the Million Meal Marathon to fight hunger in Indiana



Indianapolis, Indiana – The 13th annual Million Meal Marathon began on Monday, and thousands of volunteers turned the floors of Gainbridge Fieldhouse into a center of hope.

The event is organized by the Million Meal Movement, which aims to combat hunger in Indiana by packing one million wholesome meals every day.

The Million Meal Marathon is an organized attempt to reduce food insecurity in the state and is scheduled from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. In Indiana, almost a million people don’t know when they will eat next, according to Feeding America.

Handpacking wholesome rice casserole dinners for the underprivileged will be the task of a wide range of volunteers, including churches, families, local civic organizations, and business sponsor organizations. The volunteers will work in three two-hour stints. These dishes can feed four people and are made to cook quickly—all you need to do is add boiling water.

Every meal that is packaged will be given to Indiana’s food banks and pantries. This covers the Great Harvest Food Pantry, Second Harvest Food Bank, and Midwest Food Bank. About two weeks following the event, they played a big part in distributing these meals to various sites throughout the state.

In addition to financial contributions to cover the cost of ingredients, 2,000 volunteers are working to make the event a success. A donation of one dollar can buy six meals. Individuals can sign up for the meal-packing event for $35, while families up to five can join for $150.
