New Wheels

Thanks to several generous donors, Sherri will be going to off-site events in a new set of wheels.  We were able to purchase a used box truck with low miles (44k) to help get our materials and packaged boxes, back and forth from corporate and school events.  If you’d like to ride along with Sherri, volunteer to help at a school or corporate event.new truck

Feeding Hungry Kids in 2016

feeding kids

2016 has been a busy year.  

 Since January we have shipped four full containers to Haiti and two to the Philippines! 

We have also provided Feeding America with 125,000 meals.

 In total, 13,000 volunteers have helped pack over 1.3 million meals so far this year. 

Last year we packed a total of 1.7 million meals and it looks like 2016 is well on the way to meeting or breaking that record.

International Care Ministries

Once our food leaves the warehouse our partners pick it up at the international destination and deliver it to the families and children in need.  One of our partners, International Care Ministries, distributes KAH food to ultra-poor families in the Philippines.  You can find more about them at http://www.caremin.com/

A big thank you to ICM for all the work they are doing in the Philippines!  A container with over 237,000 meals will be on the way to you by the end of the month.
