Stop Hunger Now

We packaged 46,000 meals on February 23 - Thank you! Pictures will be uploaded soon.

We are delighted to announce that the meals from your respective meal packaging events have been shipped in a container totaling 285,120 meals from our Ashburn warehouse to Nicaragua.

This shipment is being sent through LeSea Global Feed the Hungry.

LeSea Global Feed the Hungry is a 501(c)3 non-profit focused on fighting hunger due to poverty, war, famine, drought, and natural disasters. Incorporated in 1987, the ministry has served people in 95 nations around the world. Currently, more than 35,000 children worldwide receive meals every day through LeSea's "Every Child Every Day" program in partnering schools, orphanages, and feeding centers.

In Nicaragua, LeSea serves approximately 2,500 indigent and vulnerable children in schools and other feeding programs through their partner organization, Compelled by Compassion. Providing the children with a hot and nutritionally complete meal combats chronic food insecurity and allows the program to provide inputs into each child's life that strengthens their social and emotional well being.
