The Parker County Ministerial Alliance formed a local
unit of Kids Against Hunger In 2009. In October 2009 a
group of people from a number of churches gathered to
fill the bags. A second such event was held December 19th, 2009.
A total of 6 pallets or 7,128 bags were packed. That was enough food
to feed 117 children for one year. This food was shipped to
Ruinosa, Mexico. The second packing event provided food for
children in Honduras. Similar events were held at Northside Baptist,
1st United Methodist Church in Weatherford, All Saints Episcopal Church,

MISSION OF KIDS AGAINST HUNGER
The mission of Kids Against Hunger, a humanitarian food-aid
organization, is to significantly reduce the number of hungry children
in the USA and to feed starving children throughout the world.
Kids AgainstHunger is not affiliated with or restricted to a particular
religious group and does not discriminate on any basis when
distributing its meals. Some of the organization’s volunteers
and affiliates are driven by their love of God and helping to feed
all of His children, but all religions and non-religious groups are
welcome to volunteer, donate, and help in any way.
The organization’s approach to achieving its goal - the eradication
of world hunger - includes the packaging of a highly nutritious,
vitamin-fortified soy-rice casserole by volunteers at numerous
locations within the USA and Canada, and the distribution of those
meals to starving children and their families in over 60 countries
through partnerships with humanitarian organizations worldwide.
In 2008 alone, volunteers at Kids Against Hunger’s food packaging
centers across the USA packaged over 40 million meals for
children and their families around the world and around the corner.
The Kids Against Hunger food packaging network consists of the
organization’s International Headquarters office located in New Hope,
MN (a suburb of Minneapolis), a Division in Mankato, MN, and close to 70
independent non-profit food packaging "satellites" across the U.S. and
Canada. Kids Against Hunger was incorporated in 1999, but the
organization’s founder, Richard Proudfit, has been involved with
various hunger relief projects for over thirty years. Kids Against Hunger
is a nonprofit organization recognized by the IRS for tax-deductible
donations under section 501(c)(3) of the Internal

To continue setting up food packaging satellites in each state of the USA.
To spearhead community and youth volunteer packaging of Kids Against Hunger’s highly nutritious meals.
To deliver Kids Against Hunger’s food in the USA and worldwide through partnerships with other humanitarian organization
