Who We Are
Kids Against Hunger St. Peters packages highly nutritious, life-saving meals for starving children and malnourished children and their families in developing countries and the United States. The goal of the organization is for its meals to provide a stable nutritional base from which recipient families can move their families from starvation to self-sufficiency. The majority of our food supports strategic partnerships throughout Haiti with Global Compassion Ministries.
We hope that every man, woman, and child would have the opportunity to become empowered participants in the kingdom of God throughout our community.

What We Do
We empower people to serve the “least” in our world by offering
opportunities to be an active part of packing and/or distributing
Why We Do It
When we serve and love those in extreme poverty we live out a “new vocation” that God calls us to as ambassadors of Jesus,
offering reflections of redemption found in Him.
How Are We Doing It?
Facilitating food packing events so vitamin-rich meals can be
served to those in extreme poverty. This is done through strategic
partnerships with full-time missionaries on the ground.

Kids Against Hunger Founder
In 1974, Proudfit went to Honduras as a volunteer following a devastating hurricane that hit the country. Profoundly affected by the starvation he saw among the children of that country, he made a conscious decision to commit his life and financial resources towards the enormous problem of world hunger.
Utilizing his knowledge in manufacturing and distribution, Mr. Proudfit tapped his colleagues in the corporate world for help. He enlisted the resources of leading food scientists to develop a highly nutritious meal – rich in protein and fortified with vitamins and minerals – that, when boiled with water, provides nourishment for starving children. His tireless relationship building resulted in a world-wide network of organizations that can successfully distribute the food under the worst conditions.
Proudfit is now retired from leadership of KAH, but his commitment to end world hunger remains the goal of Kids Against Hunger today.
