Kids Against Hunger Event

September 14, 2016

We Don’t Waste was proud to be apart of this wonderful event for Kids Against Hunger and Colorado Feeding Kids.  A group of over 600 volunteers from Excel Energy assembled in a school gymnasium to pack meals for those less fortunate. They created meal packets of protein rich beans and rice for the hungry. In Colorado, 1 in 5 children don’t know where their next meal will come from. Colorado Feeding Kids and Kids Against Hunger want to ensure that children in Colorado and around the United States don’t go hungry. The volunteers spent their day working hard to assemble almost 300,000 meals for those in need. We Don’t Waste then distributed that food into our hunger fighting network to ensure it gets into the stomachs of the kids who need food.
