With the help of 6,275 volunteers of all ages, Love the Hungry (formerly Kids Against Hunger-Louisville) set a new record for total meals packaged in a single year with a 2015 total of 1,012,944 meals. This marks the second consecutive year that more than 1,000,000 meals were produced by Kentuckiana volunteers.
Throughout the year, meals were distributed to eight different countries outside of the U.S. including Guatemala, Haiti, Liberia, Mali, Philippines, Sierra Leone, South Sudan, and Ukraine. The fortified meals are donated to non-governmental organizations focused on meeting the nutritional needs of malnourished children. 145,000 meals were also provided to sixteen different agencies serving families throughout Kentucky, Southern Indiana, and the United States.Read More
