Kids Against Hunger
“If you can't feed a hundred people, then feed just one.” — Mother Teresa
The children of Darfur have experienced unspeakable horrors. They are living through a conflict some call “Rwanda in slow motion.” A report by UN, which was prepared by UNICEF, the Word Food Program and the U.N.'s Food and Agriculture Organization, found that 16.1 percent of children affected by the conflict suffer from acute malnutrition, compared to 12.9 percent a year earlier. Just what can one person do to make a difference?
To defeat the notion that one person cannot make a difference in the world, we will be working with Kids Against Hunger at Stewart MN to provide a platform for people to package food and feed hungry children affected by the conflict. Be part of Building Bridges Conference 2008 effort to bring an answer to the hungry children in Sudan. For just 15 cents, we can provide a child with a nutritious meal. You don't have to stand by while children are going hungry. Join us!
Kids Against Hunger
Kids Against Hunger is a nonprofit organization with the mission to significantly reduce the number of hungry children in the USA and to feed starving children throughout the world. This is being achieved by getting volunteers involved and by setting up food packaging satellites in the USA, and through partnerships with humanitarian organizations worldwide—enabling Kids Against Hunger to deliver its specially formulated rice-soy casserole to starving children and their families in over 40 countries. The Kids Against Hunger network currently includes 30 food packaging satellites in 16 US states.
We will provide the opportunity for anyone to pay for and package a specially designed, fully nutritious meal supplement for hungry and malnourished children around the world. Rice, fortified soy, vitamins and minerals, and dehydrated vegetables are the ingredients included in each packet. The meal supplements are distributed by a network of relief organizations, both locally and internationally, that have the systems in place to distribute the food to people who are most in need.
