September is Hunger Action Month and we have lots of ways you can help support the Kansas Food Bank! Check out all these great opportunities.
Walmart’s Fight Hunger – Spark Change is a great way to help make a $60,000 difference for the Kansas Food Bank. Every day between September 15 and October 5, we need votes! And voting is very easy. Simply go to www.walmart.com/fighthunger and vote for the Kansas Food Bank. The top 50 Food Banks with the most votes will win $60,000.
Last year when a similar promotion was held, your Kansas Food Bank was a winner of $45,000 for the Food 4 Kids program.
New this year, we are to select a partner agency to receive $15,000 and we have chosen our friends at The Lord’s Diner. The funds they receive will be used to provide individual shelf stable milk cartons for the children who eat at the Diner or at one of their food trucks.
Voters must have a FaceBook page to vote and can vote daily. Please be sure and share on your FaceBook page once you have voted and encourage your friends to do the same.
Together we can Fight Hunger – Spark Change!

Foodtweeks has two missions: to help people eat better in a sustainable way and to fight hunger in America.
For every calorie users “tweek” form their food using the foodtweeks app on their smartphone, foodtweeks makes a donation the the Kansas Food Bank so we can distribute the same number of calories to feed a hungry family.
