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 our annual family-friendly, meal-packaging extravaganza where volunteers from the local Irvine community, Love Irvine, churches, and other community groups come together in unity to help end world hunger. In 2021 over 500 volunteers including Irvine Police Department, Scouts BSA, Woodbridge High School, and more helped pack 102,918 meals to help fight world hunger.
This September 24, 2022 SHEPHERD’SGROVE will again host Irvine Feeds The World in partnership with Love Irvine, who is organizing Irvine’s City-Wide Serve Day. Irvine Feeds The World will be one of the larger service projects in our city’s serve day. Our big goal again is 100,000 meals, which we can achieve with your help!

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.
