Thanksgiving Event

Please note that the Sessions are nearly full - please register soon!

The plight of hungry children around the world does not take a holiday, hunger is relentless. The natural disasters of earthquakes and tsunamis in Indonesia and Samoa have left many children at risk. The extreme famine in Guatemala is responsible for the deaths of countless children who are starving to death. The list goes on. We can either tune out the cries of the hungry or do something about it using our time, talents and treasures as we give thanks for the blessings we have this Thanksgiving.

We are very excited to announce that we will be working with WorldHelp on a special humanitarian relief project this Thanksgiving season for the children at greatest risk right now. You are encouraged to be a part of this special Thanksgiving project through your financial help and your serving at the "factory" on Saturday, Nov 21, 2009.

The "factory" will have FOUR packing sessions; each session will have 13 lines of production allowing a total of 150 people per session to serve. This is a unique opportunity for your church, business, school, college, neighborhood, family and organization to serve others in great need.

Session 1: Arrive by 8:15 AM, Packing 9:00 AM to 11:00 AM THIS SESSION IS NOW FULL

Session 2: Arrive by 10:15 AM, Packing 11:00 AM to 1:00 PM

Session 3: Arrive by 12:15 PM, Packing 1:00 PM to 3:00 PM THIS SESSION IS NOW FULL

Session 4: Arrive by 2:15 PM, Packing 3:00 PM to 5:00 PM

We are asking everyone to help financially - to make a personal sacrifice so that children may live. There are many ways to help from the TenForOne project, to fund raising ideas that you can start now. Many companies offer matching donations - does your employer offer matching donations? Let us know at and we will share the good news with others.

Please help us with the funds we need to purchase the ingredients. You can do that conveniently and safely with our online donation service. Click on DonateNow and make the decision to make a difference.

Blue Ash Opening Day!

We are pleased to announce that the "factory" has moved to a larger facility as of Oct 1. The new location is the vacant Kroger property in Blue Ash just off Kenwood Rd. The new "Factory" will allow us to operate more lines, more days,all with even more storage space. Thank you to the management and staff of Kroger for this incredible blessing of support.

Our first Blue Ash pack was last Saturday, Oct 3 and it was a good one! 33,696 meals were prepared in two 2 hour shifts! Thank you to all of our first time volunteer packers at our new location.

September 2009

September 2009 brought our final packing events at the Berean Christian Stores warehouse in West Chester. Just in September alone, all of you helped pack 53,568 meals for starving children "here, there and everywhere"!

The Kids Against Hunger Factory has been operating at Berean Christian Stores since July 2008. Since then, over 1.5 million high protein meals have been produced. That effort required over 105 tons of ingredients and well over 3,000 volunteers working in 2 hour shifts. The demand for the food has grown worldwide sadly as the number of orphans and hungry children continues to grow.

All of us are extremely appreciative of the support and encouragement that Berean Christian Stores has provided to us since we opened. President Bill Simmons and his staff have been extremely supportive to the ministry feeding hungry children.
