Who we are


The mission of the Kids Against Hunger national network is to significantly reduce the number of hungry children in the USA and to feed starving children throughout the world. Kids Against Hunger is not affiliated with or restricted to a particular religious group and does not discriminate on any basis when distributing its meals. Some of the organization’s volunteers and affiliates are driven by their love of God and helping to feed all of His children, but all religions and non-religious groups are welcome to volunteer, donate, and help in any way.

The organization’s approach to achieving its goal - the eradication of world hunger - includes the packaging of a highly nutritious, vitamin-fortified soy-rice casserole by volunteers at numerous locations within the USA and Canada, and the distribution of those meals to starving children and their families in over 60 countries through partnerships with humanitarian organizations worldwide. In 2009 alone, volunteers at Kids Against Hunger’s food packaging centers across the USA packaged over 48 million meals for children and their families around the world and around the corner.

The Kids Against Hunger food packaging network consists of the organization’s International Headquarters office located in New Hope, MN (a suburb of Minneapolis), a Division in Mankato, MN, and about 80 independent non-profit food packaging "satellites" across the U.S. and Canada.

Kids Against Hunger was incorporated in 1999, but the organization’s founder, Richard Proudfit, has been involved with various hunger relief projects for over thirty years. Kids Against Hunger is a nonprofit organization recognized by the IRS for tax-deductible donations under section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code.

It is the vision of Kids Against Hunger and our founder, Richard Proudfit:

  • To continue setting up food packaging satellites in each state of the USA.
  • To spearhead community and youth volunteer packaging of Kids Against Hunger’s highly nutritious meals.
  • To deliver Kids Against Hunger’s food in the USA and worldwide through partnerships with other humanitarian organizations.
