How much do the meals cost?
The average program cost to produce each Kids Against Hunger meal is $0.23, but because we donate our meals to an organization that in return pays for the transportation, our cost per meal is $.16.
Each bag of food (390 grams) includes six one-cup servings.
Each 32 lb. box of food holds 36 bags of food. That is the equivalent of 216 meals at a program cost of only $35. Each 40 ft. container load of food includes 285,120 meals or 40 pallets of food at a program cost of approx. $45,620.
Kids Against Hunger purchases the ingredients for its meals at very competitive prices through longstanding relationships with reliable suppliers. The necessary funds are raised through donations from individuals, corporations, churches, and other organizations.
