November was a busy month for Kids Against Hunger. We had 299 volunteers come in and package 59,800 meals. These meals are being distributed to local groups, as well as, to the people of Haiti. We are currently providing meals to Faith Mission Friday Night Food Give-Away, The Food to You Program, and Neighborhood Necessities. All of these programs serve the people of Sioux Falls and the surrounding area.
On Sunday December 13th, we will be packing a school bus that was donated by School Bus Inc. to Mission Haiti with 50,000 meals that will feed children in Ti'Rivere Haiti. Mission-Haiti has two schools as well as an orphanage and medical clinic. These meals will be given to not only school children but to pregnant women and breast feeding moms.
This is the first month that Kids Against HungerSioux Falls is able to provide over 15,000 meals that will be used in the Backpack Progran in our elementary and middle schools. This will be the first time a meal intended to be shared with the whole family, has been included in the backpacks.
December will be a busy month too. Many families will be getting together for a packing. This is, many times, instead of exchanging family presents. Please consider making this a tradition in your family.
