Operation Holiday distributes nonperishable food, fresh food vouchers, coats, blankets, and pet food to low-income families and individuals. More than 15,000 Sedgwick County residents apply annually. Half of them are children, and 20% of the adults are elderly and/or disabled on a fixed income. Children 14 and under receive gifts through a partnership with the U.S. Marine Corps Reserve Toys for Tots program. Teen2Teen provides gifts for children 15-17. 

Operation Holiday is an excellent way to volunteer. More than 7,000 volunteer hours are needed to make Operation Holiday a success. Grab your family, your congregation, your organization or come on your own - any way you like to volunteer, we can accommodate you. If you or your group are interested in volunteering, please contact us at [email protected] or 316-264-9303.

Souper Bowl

Souper Bowl

February 1, 2019

Thank you to everyone who came out to our 19th Annual SOUPer Bowl on Friday, February 1st, and made it such a succesful event! 

SOUPer Bowl is a Wichita tradition on the Friday prior to that "other" Bowl. SOUPer Bowl brings together chefs from throughout Wichita, many from popular area restaurants, donating their most popular soups so that attendees can enjoy "bottomless" bowls of their favorites and try a new flavor or two.

Homeless For A Day Challenge

Homeless For A Day Challenge

April 27, 2019

Thank you to all of our participants, donors, sponors, and other supporters for helping make our 1st Annual Homeless For A Day Challenge a success!  

Inter-Faith Ministries's (IFM) Homeless For A Day Challenge isn't about pretending to be homeless—it's about getting a glimpse of what thousands of homeless Wichitans go through each year, and seeing how IFM serves this vulnerable population through shelter, food, case management and more. When you accept the challenge to participate and spend a night in our shelter, you're not just raising awareness and much-needed funds—you're showing our city's homeless population that you care. You're joining a community of concerned Wichitans working to get even more people off the streets so they can rebuild their lives. Together we can end homelessness in Wichita.
