 Stop Hunger Now

Stop Hunger Now is an international hunger relief organization that coordinates the distribution of food and other life-saving aid around the world. The organization is driven by a vision of a world without hunger and a mission to end hunger in our lifetime by providing food and life-saving aid to the world's most vulnerable and by creating a global commitment to mobilize the necessary resources.
Stop Hunger Now meal packaging program provides volunteers the opportunity to package dehydrated, high protein, and highly nutritious meals that are used in crisis situations and in school feeding programs for schools and orphanages in developing countries around the world.  
In its efforts to respond to emergency needs around the world Stop Hunger Now receives and distributes significant donations of in-kind aid. These donations are large quantities of food, medicines, medical supplies and other such items as may be of use in fighting hunger and providing relief in a crisis.
On June 29, 2013 Morrow First UMC, Morrow Presbyterian, and Morrow First Baptist join together and packed 12,570 meal in support of NOW ministry, falling short of their 2012 record of 14,000 meal. 
We are delighted to announce that the meals from our Community Ministry meal packaging event have been shipped in a container totaling 285,120 meals from the Atlanta warehouse.  The meals were received by Stop Hunger Now's in-country partner Kidz Konnect 4 Jesus in Belize. 
Kidz Konnect 4 Jesus is a dedicated ministry program under the direction and supervision of Coastal Christian Missions, a non profit organization dedicated to providing educational programs to the children of Belize.
This long-term, focused ministry is all about connections and growing meaningful relationships between U.S. and Canadian groups with Belizean villages in a true partnership setting. Working alongside the people in the southern part of Belize, KK4J implements children and student ministry into schools and churches, establishes free feeding and food distribution programs, organizes and provides quarterly medical treatment with free medicine and vitamins, provides leadership development and training programs and also assists with a variety of basic physical needs.
KK4J also organizes Family Impact Journeys for partners whereby families can come, develop relationships and "to do life" with their partners. The addition of 'Stop Hunger Now Meals' enables KK4J to provide for the nutritional needs of the children and adults served by their programs.
