Kids Against Hunger - Exciting Opportunity

I am so proud to be able to share this exciting opportunity with all of you and I am hoping that you will prayerfully consider how you might be able to join with us in helping to feed families. Whether it is financially or in prayer we need your support!

My dad has been working extremely hard to bring an organization to Sioux Falls that is dear to his heart and things have fallen into place and it is finally a go. The organization is called Kids Against Hunger and my dad has worked to bring a packaging site to Sioux Falls!

What is Kids Against Hunger? It 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 more than 40 countries. The Kids Against Hunger network currently includes over 50 food packaging satellites across the United States and one in Canada.

The new Kids Against Hunger Sioux Falls packing site is located at the Avera Living Well Center at 2400 So. Minnesota Ave in Sioux Falls and we will be having a Kick-Off event on Saturday August 22nd at 10:00AM.

Come and help Kids Against Hunger Sioux Falls package meals to feed hungry children around the United States and starving children around the world.

In 2008, volunteers all across the USA packaged 40 million meals for starving children and their families abroad and for hungry people right here in the USA. And a portion of the meals packaged will stay in the local community.

For just 23¢ per serving you can feed a starving child! Just think about that for a moment. Less than $1 a day would feed a child for the entire day! At the Sioux Falls site groups or individuals can come in on a specified day and package meals. The process so simple that even children are encouraged to participate. What a great way to get our youth involved in outreach! If you have a group or orginazation that would like to get involved please contact me through the comment page on this blog or e-mail me at kasmith03@gmail.com and I will get you in touch with my dad!

I can't say it all so please check out the Kids Against Hunger website for more information. And remember to join us on Saturday August 22nd for our Kick-Off packing event!
