Every hour of every day 10 children per minute die of starvation or malnutrition related diseases. Mercy Meals is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization whose mission is to end that tragedy. Mercy Meals packages and ships highly nutritious, life-saving meals to starving and malnourished children in developing countries and the United States.
We do this by mobilizing the energy and caring of American children, teens, and adults on behalf of hungry children around the world. Mercy Meals seeks to end the literal hunger of poor children receiving the meals, but also satisfies a hunger among prosperous Americans, a hunger for meaning and contribution.
Mercy Meals partners with Orphan Grain Train for transporting all of our meals to children in need. Our meals are distributed to children in Haiti through the ministry of Helping Hands for Haiti. Currently, these meals make a difference in the lives of 1200 children who attend the 6 schools sponsored by Helping Hands for Haiti.
