KAH Meals Feed 70,000 Haitian Children Daily

 


 My name is Matt Oquist and boy with food in City SoleilI would like to introduce you to Atou. I met Atou on a recent trip to Haiti. He lives in City Soleil, Haiti near the Ecole Chietienne Evangelique school. 95 children attend this school where they have been feeding Kids Against Hunger meals for the last two years. For many of the students, this is the one meal that they will eat a day. The school was built by Pastor George, a local religious leader who purchased all of the cement blocks for the school, to improve the lives of Haitian children. According to Pastor George, "If there wasn't any Kids Against Hunger food, half of the students would stay home." Atou does not go to this school, because there isn't any more room, but he comes to the gate every day to see if there are any leftovers after all of the students have been fed.  The day that I met Atou there was food for him because someone in the  US volunteered to package meals with Kids Against Hunger


 

 Matt Oquist and Scott Anderson from Kids Against Hunger just returned from a trip to Haiti with members from the Luther Automotive Group. The group spent an amazing 5 days witnessing the impact of the Kids Against Hunger meals firsthand by meeting with multiple feeding partners that feed more than 70,000 Haitian children everyday.

Jefferson Award

Kids Against Hunger Founder Wins the Prestigious Jefferson Award
 Richard Speaking
Kids Against Hunger is thrilled to annouce that Richard Proudfit, the founder of Kids Against Hunger and Feed My Starving Children, has won the Jefferson Award for Greatest Public Service Benefitting the Disadvantaged.

 

Known as the "Nobel Prize for public service," the Jefferson Awards are the nation's highest honor for community service. The mission of the Jefferson Awards is to recognize, inspire, and activate volunteerism and public service in communities.

 

Proudfit was honored on June 19 at a ceremony in Washington, D.C. He won the award for his work in feeding starving children in the United States and around the world. He is responsible for delivering an astonishing 900 million meals to children in need, and he will have provided 1 billion meals before the end of the year.

 

Proudfit began his lifelong mission to feed the world's hungry in 1974 after Hurricane Fifi demolished large parts of Honduras. The horror of seeing children literally dying around him led him to develop the nutritious food that KAH uses today. His natural ability to invent and his entreprenurial spirit have been invaluable to the lives of many.

 

Past Winners of this Jefferson Award include Jesse Jackson, Betty Ford, Barbara Bush, Paul Newman, and Bill Gates.

KAH Meals to Haiti

Wednesday, Dec 5, 2013, volunteers from Kids Against Hunger of Central Texas and Hope for the Hungry load meals destined for Port au Prince, Haiti.  These meals are part of a shipment of 133,272 KAH meals for hundreds of malnourished children in schools and orphanges in Haiti.  The vitamins, minerals, and protein in each of these meals will be the primary factor in restoring these children to good health over the next several months.  Our sincere thanks to all the churchs and civic groups who donated their time and money to package these meals.  Without their help this shipment would not have been possible.
