Kiwanis Against Hunger is a project of the Manatee Sunrise Kiwanis Club. We package Kids Against Hunger food, which is a nonprofit organization with the mission to significantly reduce the number of hungry children that are starving throughout the world. This is being achieved by getting volunteers involved, and by setting up food packaging satellites in Florida, and through partnerships with humanitarian organizations worldwide like Kiwanis - that will enable Kids Against Hunger to deliver its specially formulated rice-soy casserole to starving children and their families in more than 60 countries. The Kiwanis Against Hunger website, is owned by the Manatee Sunrise Kiwanis Club and is a part of the Kids Against Hunger network that currently includes over 50 food packaging satellites across the United States and Canada
What is Kiwanis Against Hunger?
"As simple as it sounds, food is essential in the global fight against HIV and AIDS. Nutritious food can prolong the lives of people suffering with HIV and AIDS. Food and good nutrition can also allow them to continue to earn income and feed their families."
- from the United Nations World Food Program website
"More than 840 million people in the world are malnourished - 799 million of them are from the developing world. More than 153 million of them are under the age of five. 6 million children under the age of 5 die every year as a result of hunger."
