Kids Against Hunger

(Family Friendly – Children 2nd Grade+)

Did you know 10 children die per minute from starvation and malnutrition related diseases? Join us as we volunteer with Kids Against Hunger, an International organization committed to dropping that number to 0 by providing some 50 million meals per year that travel across the world and our own country directly from communities like ours. Sign up with your children, small group, and friends to spend an hour and a half packing meals together. You will want to keep signing up, you’ll have that much fun! Note: There is a suggested (but not mandatory!) donation of $20 per team member that goes towards covering the cost of the hundreds of meals we will be packing!
