In a Nutshell

Donations to help distribute nutritious meals to DC-area homeless shelters and to people in Haiti

The Fine Print

100% of donations go directly to Kids Against Hunger DC Metro. All donations will be matched up to a $2,500 total by an anonymous donor. Donations are automatically applied. Must provide full name at checkout. See Grassroots FAQs that apply to this campaign. Merchant is solely responsible to purchasers for the care and quality of the advertised goods and services.

The Issue: Malnutrition and Food Insecurity Around the World

Hunger is the world's top health risk. According to the World Food Programme, it kills more people every year than malaria, AIDS, and tuberculosis combined. Save the Children estimates that one out of four children living in developing countries is underweight, while in the United States, more than 16 million kids don't know where their next meals are coming from.

The Campaign: Distributing Meals to DC Shelters and to Haiti

If this Grassroots campaign raises $300, then Kids Against Hunger DC Metro can provide 1,300 meals to people in need locally and around the world. An anonymous donor will match all donations up to $2,500. Each additional $6 will be used to provide 26 more meals to people in need.

Half of the meals will be distributed to homeless shelters in the DC area, and the other half will be shipped to Haiti. Each specially formulated meal is designed to meet daily nutritional requirements via rice, soy, dehydrated vegetables, and 21 vitamins and minerals. Kids Against Hunger DC Metro, along with the George Washington School of Medicine and Health Sciences, will be holding a packaging event on Thursday, August 23.

All donations will be matched up to a $2,500 total by an anonymous donor.
