On April 1st, 2017 at the Peterborough Sport and Wellness Centre we have the opportunity and challenge to package 200,00 highly nutritious meals for people struggling with hunger around the world and right here in our neighbourhoods. This will be our second step toward our goal of packaging one million meals for people in need.
The goal of this event is to engage the people of Peterborough to make a difference in the lives of others. In order to do this, we will provide and volunteer to package One Million Meals using Kids Against Hunger Canada’s model of food packaging. We would like individuals from various social, religious, sport, scholastic, business and municipal groups to form teams who will engage in friendly competition to assemble as many meals as they can in a two hour period.
Listen to our radio commercial for the event:
Everyone is urged and ecouraged to take pictures and upload the pictures from the event to the One Million Meals Peterborough Facebook page and/or to the One Million Meals Peterborough Twitter accounts.
This year, 2017 is Canada’s 150 Birthday and in honour of this, we will be sending the 200,000 meals to Canada’s First Nations in Northern Ontario. Not only is this donation in Honour and Recognition of our First Nations, but also recognizing a tremendous need and support for Canada’s First Nations of Northern Ontario.
Kids Against Hunger Canada’s meals have been formulated by food scientists to provide a rich source of easily digestible protein, carbohydrates, and vitamins needed by a malnourished child’s body and mind. The food also accommodates to the broad diversity of ethnic tastes and cultural differences around the world.
Kids Against Hunger Canada’s meals offer all nine of the essential amino acids required for complete nutrition – something that can’t be said about other typical food relief sources such as rice or beans alone.
The beauty of the food formulation is its simplicity. It is made from four readily available, dry ingredients that are easy to package, keep for long periods, and require only boiling water to prepare. Despite the simplicity of the food’s content, it is a nutritionally complex and well balanced meal.
