Munch Madness

Munch Madness - feeding those in need
Take the bite out of hunger by raising awareness and funds for MLM’s food programs which serve the greater Kansas City metro area

March 1-31, 2022

Help Us Feed Kansas City Families

Food is a central focus of MLM’s ministry because we believe “hunger is not an issue of charity. It is an issue of justice” (Jacquel Diouf, United Nations Food and Agricultural Director-General).

MLM’s food programs provide critical resources for over 5,600 families in the Kansas City metro area each year. In 2020, over 10,000 households received food assistance through the three pantry locations in midtown KCMO, KC North, and KCKS, as well as through sack lunches, Saturday Breakfast, and the MLM Orchard & Garden.

People who cannot afford to buy food are faced with impossible trade-offs every day. In order to feed their families, many Kansas Citians must sacrifice other basic needs. Of the MLM pantry guests polled, 72% routinely choose between paying their utility bills or going to the grocery store. Many parents skip meals so that their children can eat. Your gift to support the annual “Munch Madness” food campaign each March ensures that families and children leave food insecurity behind.
