About Kids Against Hunger Global
Headquartered in Tulsa, Oklahoma, Kids Against Hunger Global, Inc is a 501C3 non-profit organization.
We package highly-nutritious food and set up food packaging satellites in the USA. KAH works through partnerships with humanitarian organizations worldwide.
To date, Kids Against Hunger has distributed its specially formulated food to starving children and their families in more than 70 countries.
The Kids Against Hunger network is currently made up of over 80 satellites across the United States.
— Our Mission
The mission of Kids Against Hunger Global, Inc. of Tulsa, OK, is to significantly reduce the number of hungry children in the U.S. and to feed starving children around the globe.
We do this by providing a high-nutrition food that is packaged by volunteer youth and community groups.
We work with other Christian organizations to make sure the Gospel of Jesus Christ is delivered along with the food, thus feeding the spirit as well as the body.
— Our Approach
The approach of KAHG is different from other feeding programs who only seek to fill a child’s stomach.
We use the highest nutrition possible, believing that the children are worth it, and deserve the best that we can give them.
Our food feeds the brain, as well as the body, enabling the children to go to school and learn, and thus, reach their highest potential.
— Our Work
To date, KAHG projects have distributed over 10 million meals of our specially formulated food to hungry children in the United States and to malnourished and starving children in over 80 countries around the world.
We are quick to reach out to areas that have suffered natural disasters, developing countries and areas where war has made the living conditions unstable and unsafe.
WHO WE ARE
Marshall and Sherry Horn, Directors
When two paths crossed approximately 20 years ago, what seemed like a ordinary coincidence, set in motion a series of events that have provided over ten million meals to hungry children.
Marshall Horn was a businessman in Tulsa, OK. By chance, he met Richard Proudfit, a Minnesota businessman and the two, “just clicked pretty well,” according to Marshall Horn.
It was nothing short of providence that connected these two, however. In 1999, Richard Proudfit, founded Kids Against Hunger, a nonprofit that provides food for starving children around the world and has more than 100 locations in the U.S. and Canada.
Shortly after that meeting, Marshall was asked to join the International Board of Directors for the organization, and in 2006, he and his wife started a Tulsa Kids Against Hunger chapter.
We just fell in love with the vision and what they were doing and wanted to be a part of it, and now we are,” Sherry Horn said.
Since its inception, Kids Against Hunger Global of Tulsa has distributed more than 10 million meals. Approximately half is shipped overseas to developing countries, areas suffering natural disasters or countries affected by war.
Half of the food is distributed overseas to poor countries such as Haiti, while half of it stays in the U.S. In a typical year, KAHG has provided Oklahoma food banks with over 100,000 meals.
