FFA volunteers from 17 different States joined Kids Against Hunger-Louisville to take action to end hunger. Volunteer teams arrived at the KAH Packaging Center throughout the week as part of the FFA "National Days of Service" program, which engages FFA members in community service during the National Convention. Many of the nutritious KAH meals will be included in a shipment of emergency aid to Liberia and a portion of the meals will be donated to local food banks. In 2013, FFA volunteers packaged more than 75,000 meals, bringing the two-year total to 162,216 meals in partnership with KAH-Louisville.
A newly formed "Compassion Coalition" is providing a container of emergency aid in response to the West Africa Ebola crisis. The coalition is organized with the help of the Liberian Community of Kentucky and Southern Indiana and the Concerned Mothers of Liberia. The group is partnering with three local nonprofits: Kids Against Hunger-Louisville, Supplies Over Seas, and Water With Blessings to send medical supplies, high-protein meals, and water purifiers. Your donation will provide essential supplies to help address the basic needs of those suffering from the impact of the Ebola crisis.

Volunteers gathered at the KAH Packaging Center on October 2 to assemble more than 5,000 fortified meals and help KAH-Louisville celebrate it's 2,000,000th meal. The event was sponsored by the Derby City Jeep Club and the meals will be included in a shipment of emergency aid that is being sent to Liberia. Since the official launch in 2012, more than 10,000 volunteers have participated in packaging events.
