Kids Against Hunger

Middle School students are helping others in need!

On Wednesday, May 8, 2013, 7th Grade Student Council members partnered with the Noon Kiwanis group to package meals for Kids Against Hunger.

The mission of Kids Against Hunger is to “significantly reduce the number of hungry children in the USA and to feed starving children throughout the world.” They ship meals to starving children and their families in over 60 countries through partnerships with humanitarian organizations worldwide.

Earlier this spring, the Student Council held a fundraiser and donated $200 to help pay for the food and transportation of the meals.

The packaging event was held in the Multipurpose Room at the Middle School, and the students and Kiwanis members filled 27 ¾ boxes with meals!

It is estimated that the food will provide 20,000 meals to help feed 5,000 children in Tanzania!

“The Kids Against Hunger meals have been formulated by food scientists to provide a rich source of easily digestible protein, carbohydrates, and vitamins needed by a malnourished child’s body and mind,” their website said. “The Kids Against Hunger meals have been formulated by food scientists to provide a rich source of easily digestible protein, carbohydrates, and vitamins needed by a malnourished child’s body and mind.”

The students are hoping to partner with Kiwanis members again next fall.

Helping others is a great way to show the importance of Character Counts!
