Share the Bounty is a group of Christian people in Southwest Kansas who raise funds and host meal packing events for Numana, Inc. The idea for Share the Bounty began at a small country church, Wilroads Gardens Christian Church, outside Dodge City Kansas. It has grown to include many churches in Dodge City and surrounding towns.
Numana Inc is a non-profit charity focusing on relieving world hunger. Its headquarters are in El Dorado, Kansas.

Numana, Inc relies on local organizations to raise the money to buy the food, furnish a building for packing the food and recruit volunteers to help pack. Each meal bag will feed 6 people.
