Hunger Fight’s delicious meals come in a 4-serving pouch perfect for feeding a family. Shelf-stable and requiring only boiling water to easily prepare, they can stand alone as a great-tasting family meal. As a foundational meal, each can be supplemented with vegetables, ground beef, tuna, or other proteins to meet a family's taste or cultural food preferences. With cooking instructions in both English and Spanish, serving suggestions are also included on every bag.
Enriched with up to twenty (20) added vitamins and nutrients, these meals can provide that extra boost a child, adult or senior needs to meet their daily nutritional requirements, filling them up and increasing their focus, concentration and energy. The meals include Beans-N-Rice, Cheezy Mac, and Brown Sugar Oatmeal. School backpack programs and food pantries have experienced a dramatic increase in food needs for children, seniors, and families over the past two years. Since the onset of the COVID19 pandemic, the need for food has risen exponentially and the demand increases almost daily.
