Kids Against Hunger - Fort Wayne is excited to annouce our first 100,000 meal public event to be held September 17th at the Memorial Coliseum!
What is this event?
A Kids Against Hunger packing event is a fun and meaningful way to make a difference. Teams of 11 people work in an assembly line to fill, weigh, and seal bags with our specially formulated rice casserole ingredients. Our meal has been designed specifically for starving or malnourished people, particularly children. The food consists of rice, vitamin-fortified soy, dehydrated vegetables, and a chicken-flavored (vegetarian) vitamin & mineral mixture. It has been developed by food scientists to be simple, easy to prepare, easy to digest, and packed for an extended shelf-life. Click here for more information on our meal.
Where is the food going?
The 100,000 meals to be packed during the Hands Packing Hope Event will go immediately to International Care Ministries (ICM) in the Philippines. ICM’s work is targeted to the 7 million Filipinos living on less than $0.50 per day. They minister holistically by meeting physical, educational, emotional, and spiritual needs. Learn more about how they are transforming lives at caremin.com.
