Kids Against Hunger

Pin It Now!

A few months ago my Bible study group did a little project together.
We met at Kids Against Hunger and packaged food that was being taken to Haiti the next day. It would be stuffed in suitcases and delivered by people from our church.

For a few hours and $25 each we packaged 800 meals! For many kids this meal will be the only meal of the day.

The mission of Kids Against Hunger, a humanitarian food-aid organization, is to significantly reduce the number of hungry children in the U.S.A. and to feed starving children throughout the world. It is an awesome organization with local chapters throughout the country.
If you are interested in volunteering to package food or having a packaging party check out their website to see where your nearest location is and get on it! Or just donate money.

We tried a sample of the food and it was actually pretty good. Tasted like Rice-A-Roni. Not to be confused with My Tenderoni.

And we got to wear hairnets and used heavy duty machinery. Well, it was kind of like a glue gun/press on steroids. Still edgy and dangerous though.
