What we aim to solve New!

The lack of proper nutrition creates serious health and developmental consequences for individuals and has far reaching implications for communities. In the United States 15.8 million children do not have regular access to healthy meals (1). In developing countries one out of six children -- roughly 100 million -- is underweight, the result of acute or chronic malnutrition (2).

Our goal is to provide Life Changing Nutrition to children and families that suffer from hunger and malnutrition. Life. Hunger steals quality of life. For some it steals life itself. Small children are especially vulnerable, and each day more than 8,000 perish due to hunger related causes. Changing. Fueled by like-minded community members, we provide meals that have the power to transform lives. Regular access to nutritious food does more than satisfy in the short term. It builds the foundation for a hopeful future. Nutrition. Superior nutrition in each serving is vital. Our meals carry a powerful vitamin/mineral combination. This newly developed formula is scientifically proven to improve key health factors of the chronically hungry.

We engage with businesses, churches and civic organizations to create the highly nutritious Nutri-Plenty meals at meal packing events. These meals are then distributed to local food pantries and to communities in developing nations. For our international partners in Haiti and Guatemala, the meals are a critical addition to the other services and education they provide to bring a community out of poverty. Our Director of Development Charrie James works daily to develop new events and nurturing ongoing events. We also offer quarterly public meal packing events where community members can come to pack meals at our Indianapolis facility.

The staff at Pack Away Hunger brings expertise from both the profit and non-profit worlds in the areas of development, management, volunteerism, education and logistics. Over the past 10 years, interaction with hundreds of event sponsors and tens of thousands of volunteers has helped us refine our packing events to provide a meaningful and efficient service opportunity, one that leaves a lasting impact with participants. Additionally, we have extensive experience vetting our international partners to ensure that the meals we provide are distributed to the proper channels and avoid corruption that can plague developing nations. We regularly communication with our domestic food banks and pantries to ensure the proper distribution of the meals as well as education about its preparation and nutritional benefits.

Our meal count will increase significantly and we will receive positive feedback from our event sponsors and participants through surveys. Additionally we will continue to solicit testimonials and empirical data from our meal recipient agencies.

SInce 2008 we have created and distributed more than 16 millions meals to people in need. Additionally, more than 66,00 volunteers have participated in meal packing events. Our goal is to continue to increase both of these numbers so that we can continue to reach more people in our local communities and abroad.

Organizational Demographics

In order to support nonprofits and gain valuable insight for the sector, GuideStar worked with D5—a five-year initiative to advance diversity, equity, and inclusion in philanthropy—in creating a questionnaire. This section is a voluntary questionnaire that empowers organizations to share information on the demographics of who works in and leads organizations. To protect the identity of individuals, we do not display sexual orientation or disability information for organizations with fewer than 15 staff. Any values displayed in this section are percentages of the total number of individuals in each category (e.g. 20% of all Board members for X organization are female).
