KIDS AGAINST HUNGER


We are fortunate to have found a non-profit organization, Kids Against Hunger™, with a vision consistent with OCIMA’s goals to help feed the hungry and to actively involve children and teenagers.


Several years ago, Kids Against Hunger™ enlisted the help of food scientists to develop a specially formulated meal to provide a rich source of easily digestible protein, carbohydrates, and vitamins needed by an undernourished child’s body and mind.  The food offers all nine of the essential amino acids required for complete nutrition, something that can’t be said about other typical food relief sources such as rice or beans alone.  It is also very simple to prepare, requiring only boiling water to make a complete meal.


Kids Against Hunger™ purchases and stores the food ingredients and packaging materials in bulk and provides a means for volunteers to contribute time to package the food for shipment all over the world.  They also arrange special off-site packaging events for groups like OCIMA, as long as the group can cover the cost of the food and other incidentals (e.g., packaging materials).
