Kids Coalition Against Hunger
Community service experiences for our elementary school students are an integral part of what makes our schools and our community strong, as we strive to open a World of Possibilities for all students. Just as we value exemplary academics, athletics, the arts, and extra-curricular opportunities, the chance to stand shoulder-to-shoulder with students from inner-city communities in service to others, empowers our students, strengthens relationships, builds awareness of our global society, and offers a service opportunity that our students can actively engage in beyond simply offering a contribution of food, supplies or money. Over the past decade, Northville, Detroit and Hamtramck students have partnered to pack more than 1,000,000 meals for hungry children around the world.
Through Kids Coalition Against Hunger, our students learn that hunger is a world problem and that we all have a responsibility to contribute to its solution. Building relationships between students and their community helps children understand that working together for a common purpose is an important way to make a difference. Ultimately, these children experience the joy of hands-on giving – a lesson we believe will influence a lifetime of thinking and behavior.
Kids Coalition Against Hunger is an international, volunteer-driven organization dedicated to providing food to malnourished and starving children throughout the world, including right here in Metro Detroit. The organization partners with local schools, churches and other community groups to organize food packing events.
