Did you know that 1 in 7 kids in the world suffers from the effects of food insecurity, living in a chronic state of malnutrition? Through the OneMeal program, tens of thousands of impoverished children have a warm, nutritious meal EACH DAY.
Irvine Feeds The World is an annual family-friendly, meal-packaging extravaganza where volunteers from the local Irvine community, Love Irvine, churches, and other groups come together in unity to help end world hunger. In 2019 over 500 volunteers from all over the city, including Irvine Police Department, helped pack 62,424 meals to help fight world hunger through our partnership with Kids Around The World and their One Meal Program.

Kids Around the World empowers groups to be a part of the solution of childhood malnutrition. OneMeal food is packed and sponsored by partners and volunteers in the US at packing events across the country. Then it is shipped overseas to serve malnourished children in orphanages, schools, homes, churches, and community feeding centers. Kids Around the World creates a forum for concerned people in the US to be a part of the solution of childhood malnutrition. For our volunteers, coming together in a fun, high-energy, and meaningful service event to hand-pack millions of meals every year is a precious and impactful experience.
