Feeding Starving Children
End World Hunger With Our
— Food Packages
Hamilton Middle School students lead humanitarian efforts by packing food for the hungry, under the direction of Dean Tammy Bowman:
Mrs. Bowman writes, “Since our involvement with your program over the last year, our scholars have developed a compassionate sense of responsibility to help others that are less fortunate. Our scholars have been affected in many wonderful ways such as understanding that they have the power to make a difference in the lives of others.”
Our food packages help combat world hunger
Each packet contains long-grain, high-quality, water-polished white rice, textured soy (52% protein) containing nine vitamins and minerals, six dehydrated vegetables, and a powerful mixture of 21 vitamins and minerals.
This nutrient-rich formula was designed especially for this feeding program and will reverse the starvation process in the human body.
Easy to Prepare
Our food packages come in individual packages that are easily prepared with little effort.
The 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 brain. The meals offer all nine of the essential amino acids required for complete nutrition.
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 with water to prepare. Despite the simplicity of the food’s content, it is a nutritionally complex and well- balanced meal, and it meets World Health Organization standards.
- Latin Rice
Our original food formula was developed in the mid-1970s as an inexpensive, highly nutritious meal that could be shipped, easily prepared and consumed worldwide.
It was important to ensure that the flavor would be appreciated and could easily absorb the flavors and spices preferred by people in diverse communities where it was distributed. Thus the original flavor was designed to be flavor neutral.
Much has changed since the original launch; specifically we discovered that people facing food insecurity in the US actually prefer a nutritious meal with more flavor. Additionally, many US food pantries operate on client choice, meaning they allow families to shop the pantry, choosing the food they want to take home.
To increase the likelihood that our nutritious and fortified product would be chosen and consumed by families, we needed a new product with a new flavor and packaging to reflect more contemporary preferences.
While the original formula is still very much in demand internationally, new research and development produced our Latin Rice product featuring premium long-grain white rice, soy that is darkened and contains ten fortified vitamins. Black beans were added for color and flavor and protein. There are a total of 17 vitamins and minerals and 9 amino acids in the spices added to the product.
The Latin Rice, with its flavor and richer texture, passes the Federal School Lunch requirement… AND we kept the cost at 25 cents per meal!
