FOOD INSECURITY

Nearly 50 million people in the United States live in food insecure households.

By definition, food insecurity is "the limited or uncertain availability of nutritionally adequate and safe food." 16.2 million children lack the means to get enough nutritious food on a regular basis, and 1 in 5 children in Kansas City suffer from food insecurity.

SCHEDULE A PARTY

Gather your friends, coworkers, family, youth group & help fight hunger!

These crazy fun parties get people together to pack delicious, healthy meals that are given to hunger relief groups in the communities in which the parties take place. We can come to you or you can come to us. But be ready to get your hairnet on and help fight hunger!

WHY CHOOSE US?

We fight hunger while teaching youth about the importance of being neighborly

Not only do we want to fight hunger, we also strive to find the underlying elements of it and combat the root causes of poverty. Today's youth will soon be the leaders in our world. We want them to experience compassion and kindness and give them the opportunity to help those in need.

Something to Celebrate

Since 2009, we have been able to pack 4,307,836 meals. Many of these meals stayed right here in Kansas City and helped feed the 1 in 5 kids that suffer from food insecurity. Thank you to everyone who donated, participated, threw a party and volunteered! Because of you, 1,000,342 people in need received a nutritious meal.
