Kids Against Hunger Verde Valley

Feeding families around the world and around the corner.


Kids Against Hunger is a humanitarian food-aid organization whose mission is to significantly reduce the number of hungry children in the USA and to feed starving children throughout the world.  Kids Against Hunger is not affiliated with or restricted to a particular religious group and does not discriminate on any basis when distributing its meals.

The organization’s approach to achieving its goal – the eradication of world hunger – includes the packaging of a highly nutritious, vitamin-fortified soy-rice casserole by volunteers at numerous locations within the USA and Canada, and the distribution of those meals to starving children and their families in over 60 countries.

Please visit their website at for more information.


Manzanita Outreach partnered with Kids Against Hunger in 2011 by becoming the first and only satellite operation in Arizona. Since adopting the program, we have packaged and distributed over $1.6 Million meals.  Our meals have been distributed both locally and abroad.  In order to achieve these results, we host packing events (large and small) throughout the year.  Historically, over 1,000 volunteers annually join in the fun and make a difference in the lives of others.
