Feed Nicaragua


Feed Nicaragua is a mission project that provides food for hungry children by packing meals here in the U.S. and delivering them to our partners in Nicaragua. Each meal is a precise mixture of dried chicken, dried vegetables, rice, and soy, can be prepared using only boiling water, and contains a full day's nutrients for the kids who are served. Each meal costs 30 cents and is probably the only hot meal most of the children will receive on a given day.

Our goal is to raise $15,000 and provide over 50,000 meals to Nicaragua. You, your family, your business, your community organization, sports team or church can support this worthy cause either through donations, volunteering, or both.
