A global charity is fighting for the food insecure residents of South Dallas to end hunger. The organization, “Feeding Children Everywhere,” delivers healthy meals daily to families all over the world.
This month, the charity opened its 10,000 sq. ft. Dallas satellite office on N. Great Southwest Parkway in Grand Prairie with plans to feed families living in the food deserts of South Dallas.
To receive the free meals, families can download the new app, “Fed 40,” and fill out a form to request a package of meals that will be delivered straight to their doorstep in about one business day.
“It’s a more efficient, cost-effective and environmentally responsible way to end hunger in the U.S.” Dave Green
“It’s a more efficient, cost-effective and environmentally responsible way to end hunger in the U.S.,” CEO Dave Green said, according to the charity’s website. “Our Red Lentil Jambalaya isn’t just good for you, it tastes good too. It’s packed with protein and can easily be customized to individual tastes with ingredients people already have on hand.”
FCE’s jambalaya is a mix of lentils, rice, and dehydrated vegetables provide the food insecure residents with a balanced meal that can serve up to 40 people.
“It’s designed to be easy to make it your own [recipe],” by adding your own spices or meat, said Robert Andrescik, chief communications officer.
PARTNERING TO STOP HUNGER
The charity also recently partnered with Chick-fil-A to package 1 million meals to be distributed across the U.S. to food banks in 13 states.
Chick-fil-A broke an FCE record by packaging 1,073,528 meals for hungry families in less than an hour.
“This is a great accomplishment, and it speaks volumes of Chick-fil-A’s commitment to people in the communities they serve,” Green said, on the charity’s blog.
The organization is connecting with volunteers and local churches in low-income communities to add to the 66 million meals that have already been delivered to families around the world.
