Miracle Family Care along with the technical assistance of Kids Against Hunger, launched a project for the underprivileged and socially disadvantaged kids from Sri -Lanka so that they could have a well-balanced nutrition diet. 2000 bags were completed in this project in 2017.
The meals have been formulated by food scientists to provide a rich source of easily digestible protein, carbohydrates, and vitamins needed by a malnourished child’s body and mind. The food also accommodates to the broad diversity of ethnic tastes and religious differences around the world. Meals offer all nine of the essential amino acids required for complete nutrition – something that can’t be said about other typical food relief sources such as rice or beans alone.
The vitamin formula is a proprietary formula and is the “secret sauce” that goes into our food. It includes 21 vitamins and minerals, and each bag of our food contains six servings of the dehydrated food which when boiled will feed six children.
According to the food scientists developing the food, it supplies the optimum amount of nutrition for a malnourished child. It provides not just a meal, but better health to starving children. Additionally, our bags are specifically made from moisture-proof and odor-proof material to prevent spoilage and insect or rodent problems. The food bags are also three-ply for strength.
Kids Against Hunger and Miracle Family Care came together to help the children in Sri-Lanka. Many people including young and the old came to give a helping hand in packaging the parcels. There was a lot of enthusiasm from the people who came to volunteer. Nearly 64 Boxes was packaged with 34 going to Sri-Lanka and 30 going to the Nunavut project which includes the young sexually abused teenagers and pregnant women. In total 13,824 meals were processed, packaged and sent.
