Our Mission

Kids Against Hunger is designed to utilize the help of volunteers to pack and ship nutritious meals to established humanitarian feeding programs, both in San Diego and around the world. Every meal we pack gets to a hungry kid! Our goal is to feed starving, malnourished children and to help end world hunger.
