Our Mission

Kids Against Hunger Illinois is a non-profit, volunteer driven, locally funded organization that packages dry, highly nutritious food for hungry people in America and starving people in Nicaragua. We provide opportunities for groups, families and individuals to volunteer in packaging the food, funding the efforts and helping its recipients move from starvation or food insecurity to self-sufficiency.

How You Can Get Involved

At 30 cents per meal, we are able to oversee the entire process of packing food at events through the personal delivery of each meal to our partnerships in Nicaragua. Your secure, tax deductible donation will help us create more meals at packing events to provide for those in desperate need.
