Food for Kidz Annual Packaging Event on Wednesday

The alumni group of Kids Against Hunger (Food  for Kidz) has scheduled its annual meal packaging day at St. Pius X High School on Wednesday April 1.  The local group is part of the national organization Kids Against Hunger, which organizes youth to become involved in anti-hunger relief efforts.

The above video was produced when Kids Against Hunger came to St. Pius X High School in 2009. Volunteers  package highly nutritious, life-saving meals for children and their families in developing countries and the United States. A number of the alumni are now part of  the Kids Against Hunger chapter at the University of New Mexico.  Visit the alumni group's Facebook page.

 "We will be putting together the meals from raw materials that we have been raising money to purchase," said Ali Frumpkin, an alumni leader. "Eighty percent of the meals packaged will remain in New Mexico to help our local food banks, and the remaining 20% will be given to Food for Kidz to be delivered to another location in need."
