Thanks to the Bradenton Kiwanis Club sponsoring 50,000 meals, we have been able to package food for local food pantries in this time of need. With only 10 people on one line, it is a slow process, but the food is going to those in in our community in desperate need.
Kiwanis Against Hunger - Packaging food for the hungry in our local community and out of town...
Our club sets up packaging events so that volunteers can work side by side for the common goal of providing food for the many homeless and food insecure in our community. We can also bring this project to your community and work with your club or organization organize a packaging event. These photos below show some of our past events.

Book Bus at the
DeSoto Children's Parade
April 19, 2019 the Book Bus was in the DeSoto Children's Parade, and then was at Sutton Park after the parade giving out books to the children. We visit many schools and events during the year to distribute books at no charge to children to encourage a love of reading and increase literacy.
