Hamilton Middle School packages food, under the direction of Dean Tammy Bowman:
Mrs. Bowman writes, "Since our involvement with your program over the last year, our scholars have developed a compassionate sense of responsibility to help others that are less fortunate. Our scholars have been affected in many wonderful ways such as understanding that they have the power to make a difference in the lives of others."
There are 40,000 children under the age of 18 who die somewhere in the world each day from starvation or malnutrition-related diseases. Our mission is to end that tragedy.
Since it's launching, Kids Against Hunger and affiliates have distributed Two Billion meals in more than 80 countries around the world.
We feed hungry children and their families around the corner and around the world.
Each packet contains long-grain, high-quality, water-polished white rice, textured soy (52% protein) containing nine vitamins and minerals, six dehydrated vegetables, and a powerful mixture of 21 vitamins and minerals.
This nutrient-rich formula was designed especially for this feeding program and will reverse the starvation process in the human body. Each bag contains six servings and is prepared in 20 minutes by adding it to boiling water.
In addition, we now have our newest formula, Latin Rice, which was developed for consumption in the United States becasue it has more flavor and is appealing to families here.
Come see us!

Disaster Relief is a main focus for us. We do our best to keep a supply of our food on hand to meet needs in areas that are struck with natural disasters, such as tornadoes and hurricanes. We are always among the first to respond when the need arises.
That's why we need to keep emergency supplies ready to go in a moments notice.
Our food is packaged by volunteer youth (of all ages), who volunteer their time, money and efforts to assemble our high-nutrition food to save lives both within the United States and around the globe. We do this by distributing this packaged food through partnerships with other humanitarian organizations, both local and global.
There are over 7 billion people in the world today and the United Nations estimates almost 800 million of those are hungry and are experiencing chronic malnutrition. That figures out to one person in nine.
A child under the age of 5 years dies every 6 seconds somewhere in the world because of hunger and hunger-related diseases.
In the US, there are 15.3 million children under the age of 18 who do not have access to healthy nutrition.
