Feed the Need!
On Friday November 29th or "Black Friday", over 150 people decided to forego shopping and in some cases even sleeping to instead come to our facility and help prepare highly nutritious food for hungry people.
We would like to thank all the volunteers who came out for our first annual "Feed the Need...Ignore the Greed" event. We packed over 15,000 meals that will be shipped to the Philippines for disaster relief efforts there.
We had several donors who did not attend the event, this we are also very grateful for. With the turnout and support we received we will definitely be doing this again next year. Mark your calendars for Friday November 28th, 2014.
We would like to thank the Daily Journal for the nice article they did about the event and we would like to thank Clara Edwards of Noblesville for donating her time to come take some great pictures.
We are continuing our efforts to send food to the Philippines. If you would like to help us with this effort, you can click on the donate button on our website to donate online or you can organize a packing event with your church, business, civic group, etc. Click here to contact us about getting an event organized.

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.
