Hunger — it’s something that no child should ever have to experience.  A child’s chance for a successful tomorrow starts with having enough nutrition today.  But there are children in schools in your neighborhood who don’t know where their next meal is coming from.

We have an opportunity to change that through the annual Greater Plymouth/Canton Service Project which benefits Kids Coalition Against Hunger. 

In order for this annual event to be a success, the steering committee of the Greater Plymouth/Canton Service Project raises $70,000 and solicits 1,500 volunteers to assist us in packaging 250,000 meals.  These meals are used to feed children and their families locally, across the country, and around the globe.

The meal offered through Kids Coalition Against Hunger was developed by food scientists to provide a rich source of easily digestible protein, carbohydrates and vitamins needed by an undernourished child’s body and mind. The food is also acceptable to the broad diversity of ethnic tastes and religious differences around the world. 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 six cups of boiling water to make a complete meal.
