The mission of Kids Against Hunger, a humanitarian food-aid organization, 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.
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. Last year alone, volunteers at Kids Against Hunger’s food packaging centers across the USA packaged forty 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 Omaha, NE and over 50 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 Richard Proudfit and Kids Against Hunger:
- 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
