Free Meals For Those In Need

Since 1983, the hungry in Wichita have been able to count on us for a meal

Breakthrough hosts a free brown bag meal every Monday through Friday morning from 8:15 to 9:00.

Breakfast is served Monday – Friday, 8:15-9:00 a.m. to individuals and families in our community. It happens at our building at 1010 N Main St, Wichita, KS 67203.

In the past, we have served more than 36,000 hot lunches. We aim to reach the same communities moving forward, but just a little earlier – with breakfast.

Of those who benefited from a meal at Breakthrough:

77% are male
90% are unemployed
97% have an income of less than $25,000 per year
74% have an income of less than $10,000 per year
62% are homeless
