122,000 individuals face food insecurity in Jackson County alone
Matt Besler of Sporting KC is teaming up with Bishop Sullivan Center's Defend Against Hunger program to make a difference in our community.
We invite you and your family to gain a deeper understanding of hunger in our city and engage in making a difference by joining us for a Family Hunger Experience. For a short time, get a glimpse of what it is like to provide food for yourself and your family on a limited budget. This hour and half will change your understanding of what it means to wonder where your next meal comes from.
At a Family Hunger Experience, you will:
Face the challenges of low-income families
by walking in their shoes.
Understand the weight of food insecurity
through experiential activities with your family.
Advocate and act for change
through collecting food and
being a voice for people who aren't often heard.
Our goal is that youth and their families take away lifelong lessons: an understanding of hunger and poverty, learning how to set big goals and achieve them, and choosing as a family to let their actions reflect their values. At the same time, the food collected through Defend Against Hunger is the difference between dinner and an empty table tonight for thousands of families.
Sign up below for the date that works best for you and join us for a Family Hunger Experience.
At the end of the summer, join Bishop Sullivan Center, Matt Besler, and his teammates as we celebrate the impact your family made in our community.
