393 volunteers participated in Love the Hungry packaging events during the month of October – producing 81,066 Nutri-Plenty® meals.  Participating groups included Deb Rakestraw’s Birthday Celebration, First Baptist Church – Grayson, KY, Highland Baptist Church, Prichard Elementary School, and Rullman-Hunger Funeral Home/SE Indiana.

Volunteers in Puerto Rico help deliver 7,000 Nutri-Plenty meals.

In partnership with WaterStep, a Louisville-based clean water initiative, Love the Hungry was able to deliver more than 7,000 fortified meals to Puerto Rico.  The island suffered significant damage from recent hurricanes and many residents lack the essentials of clean water, food and electricity.  Nutri-Plenty® meals were delivered to Barranquitas to help feed school children and Love the Hungry will be providing additional meals in the near future.

We also give thanks for the safe arrival of humanitarian aid to South Sudan. A container of 250,000 fortified meals, WaterStep supplies, and 11 biomass cookstoves arrived on October 6.  It’s the sixth shipment of aid delivered to South Sudan since conflict erupted in 2013.  In partnership with NGO Nile Orphan Care, nearly 1,000 orphaned children are receiving nourishing meals each day.

Since conflict erupted in 2013, Love the Hungry has helped send five containers of humanitarian aid to South Sudan, including more than 100,000 Nutri-Plenty® meals that arrived in March.  With the help of non-governmental partnerships – fortified meals, medical supplies and high-efficiency cookstoves have provided hope in the midst of famine.  Louisville-based nonprofit WaterStep has donated water purification equipment and bleach making devices to the humanitarian mission.

More than 2 million children have been displaced by the conflict and many face chronic hunger.  Love the Hungry has been providing daily meals for more than 900 orphaned children and your help is needed to sustain the mission.  Due to the urgent needs, we’re preparing to send another container of aid in June.  This shipment will include more than 200,000 Nutri-Plenty® meals, twelve high-efficiency cookstoves, and other supplies.  To expedite delivery, an anonymous donor has offered to match up to $7,500 in donations designated for this shipment.  100% of the donations will be used to offset shipping costs.

Checks payable to Love the Hungry may be mailed to 4209 Gardiner View Avenue, Louisville, KY  40213.  To make a secure online donation, click here:  https://donate.lovethehungry.org/checkout/donation?eid=130190
