Feastival isn’t just a ticket to the best food and drink pop-up in town. It’s a ticket to making a difference. Hunger is a behemoth of a problem for thousands in KC every day. Join and help us devour the beast – after all, it takes a village to feed a city. So be a good human and eat like a monster. Give in, give big and consume for a cause.
This year’s Forks & Corks event, Feastival, will feature three events all under the Union Station roof: a Friday night dinner served by top KC chefs, a Saturday brunch with samples from the city’s hottest brunch spots and a giant volunteer event where we’ll pack bags for the food insecure.
A little history: Forks & Corks is Harvesters’ largest annual fundraiser. It was created in 1997 to support our hunger relief efforts and is known as one of KC’s best food and wine tasting events. Eat, drink and feed many! 100% of the proceeds benefit the hungry in our community. Each year, it generates funds to provide more than 1 million meals.
1 in 6 kids in our community is at risk of hunger.
Hunger impacts health. 29% of those who are food insecure are also in poor health.
Hunger increases stress, decreases focus, and impacts ability to perform at work and school.
Hunger disproportionally impacts people of color.
Harvesters is a regional food bank serving 26 counties in Northwestern Missouri and Northeastern Kansas. We envision a time when everyone in our community will have access to enough nutritious food to maintain a healthy lifestyle. Learn more about what we do and how you can help at www.harvesters.org.
