Indiana Farm Bureau Partnership
We are proud to announce that Indiana Farm Bureau won the "Most Innovative" Award at the American Farm Bureau Federation Young Farmer Conference for their "Harvest for All" project. Nationally, this project raised more than $556,273 and generated more than 10 million pounds of food for hungry Americans. Some of this was due to a partnership with Kids Against Hunger.
According to The Hoosier Farmer, “The Harvest For All initiative is one of the mostimportant community service efforts undertaken by Farm Bureau members, especially in these tough economic times,” said American Farm Bureau Federation President Bob Stallman.

Since our partnership began, Indiana Farm Bureau has packed roughly 70,000 highly nutritious meals at their annual conferences in Indianapolis. We look forward to working in tandem with this great organization for years to come. For full details from the conference, read the press release.

Strategic Partner Highlight
Food For The Poor is the largest international relief and development organization in the United States, according to the Chronicle of Philanthropy. Founded in 1982, this interdenominational Christian ministry serves the poorest of the poor in 17 countries throughout the Caribbean and Latin America.
Kids Against Hunger-Greenwood is proud to be a strategic partner with Food For The Poor working to end hunger in this part of the world. In 2012, our satellite along with sponsor groups such as FFA and partner churches sent hundreds of thousands of meals to Haiti and Guatemala through Food For The Poor. In that same year, Food For The Poor shipped 3,414 containers of aid and built 6,805 new housing units.
In March of 2013, our director, Larry Moore traveled to Haiti to see the feeding programs and help prepare Kids Against Hunger meals for the starving children in orphanages run by Food For The Poor.
Last October, the FFA sent 500,000 meals to Haiti. Click here to read about how Food for the Poor is making a difference in the Western Hemisphere.
