MEXICO

Hunger is the number one complaint of under-priviledged people throughout Mexico.  Mexico's National Institute of Nutrition reports 350 people die each day in that country from hunger and related diseases.


Extreme poverty in Mexico is widespread and the need for food is continual due to lack of ability to grow sufficient crops.
The hunger crisis has hit the indigenous communities especially hard. 

Kids Against Hunger in Tulsa has been sending food into Mexico since December, 2003. We work with Pastor Frank Gonzales to send food into the border, as well as the mountainous regions deep in the country.

Our high-nutrition food enables the children to not only thrive physically, but feeds the brain as well so that the   learning capabilities are helped.

LOCAL AREAS

Each Kids Against Hunger satellite keeps a portion of the food they package for local area outreaches.

We don't overlook the needs in our own areas.

Kids Against Hunger - feeding children around the corner and around the world.

We take doctors who conduct medical clinics and food for distribution in schools and orphanages and feeding programs.
