KAH packages a fortified rice-soy mixture with added dehydrated vegetables and 21 essential vitamins and minerals. Each bag contains 6 servings and is ready to serve in less than 20 minutes by simply boiling water. The bags are weighed, boxed and then shipped overseas.
KAH food has been shipped to 60 different countries and are working at expanding to even more! Distribution is primarily done in those countries through church and mission organizations, the Red Cross, the US Navy, and local food banks.
KAH of Park Rapids has packaged and shipped over 1,200,000 meals in just over 6 years! In 2009 all of the satellites packaged over 60,000,000 meals!
KAH of Park Rapids is run completely by volunteers and it is supported solely through donations from concerned individuals, families, churches, clubs and businesses.
Every $1 donated pays for 6 servings, and is fully tax deductible. A donation of $50 can serve a meal to nearly 300 starving children around the world. $100 serves 600 … $500 serves 3000 and so on.
KAH Park Rapids is actively involved in fighting the problems surrounding starvation in the world. If this project is something that awakens the compassion in your heart, then you need to consider getting involved!
Park Rapids Chapter
Kids Against Hunger is a non-profit organization whose mission is to provide fully nutritious food to impoverished children around the world. KAH was founded by Richard Proudfit, a Minnesota businessman. More than 30 years ago Mr. Proudfit made a conscious decision to commit his life and financial resources towards the enormous problem of world hunger.
In the late 1990′s, Pastor Mark Waller from Faith Baptist Church in Park Rapids, connected with the KAH organization when he would bring his Jr. High youth group to do ministry projects in the Minneapolis area for a few days each summer. Eventually, a satellite packaging location was started in Park Rapids in Sept. of 2003. At that time, Park Rapids was the 19th satellite to begin packaging. As of Jan. 2010, there were 73 satellite locations in 23 states packaging over 60 million meals in 2009.
KAH of Park Rapids has always been a mobile packaging unit, traveling around our region within a 100 mile radius. We have worked with all ages of people and groups from scouts, to seniors at nursing homes, to grade school – high school classes, to family groups, neighborhoods, clubs and many others.
