LOUISVILLE, KY. (WDRB) -- Kids Against Hunger Louisville will soon package its 250,000th meal. Over one thousand volunteers have helped package those meals since the group was established in March.
The formula for the meals was developed by food scientists from some of the leading agriculture businesses like Pillsbury, General Mills, and Archer Daniels Midland.
Dale Oelker, the Director of Kids Against Hunger Louisville, says, "It took three years to develop and it's very scientific in the way that the vitamins, minerals, nutrients are provided through this meal. It's dry ingredients that have a long shelf life, easy to prepare and the fact that just one of these meals can feed six people provides even more impact."
So far its meals have been shipped to six countries including here in the U.S., Kenya, Haiti, and El Salvador.
