This project was organized by Isaac Skalsky and completed in 2012.
The next project the THIS Movement will be doing is the “Kids Against Hunger” project. The students will be bagging meals of soy, rice, and dried vegetables to send to third world countries. If you would like to donate to this project, please contact Isaac Skalsky at (218) 964-5720.

The mission of Kids Against Hunger, a humanitarian, food-aid organization, is to significantly reduce the number of hungry children in the USA and to feed starving children throughout the world. Kids Against Hunger is not affiliated with or restricted to a particular religious group and does not discriminate on any basis when distributing its meals. The organization’s approach to achieving its goal – the eradication of world hunger – includes the packaging of a highly nutritious, vitamin-fortified soy-rice casserole by volunteers at numerous locations within the USA and Canada, and the distribution of those meals to starving children and their families in over 60 countries through partnerships with humanitarian organizations worldwide. In 2010 alone, volunteers at Kids Against Hunger’s food packaging centers across the USA packaged over 40 million meals for children and their families around the world and around the corner. The Kids Against Hunger food packaging network consists of the organization’s International Headquarters office located in New Hope, MN (a suburb of Minneapolis), a Division in Mankato, MN, and about 90 independent non-profit food packaging “satellites” across the U.S. and Canada.Kids Against Hunger was incorporated in 1999, but the organization’s founder, Richard Proudfit, has been involved with various hunger relief projects for over thirty years.For more information on the Kids Against Hunger food packing network please visit www.kidsagainsthunger.org
