How are you celebrating America's 237th birthday this week?
Some young volunteers in our nation's capitol gathered together not far from the White House to pack food packages for hungry kids.
Their goal for the Washington, D.C., effort is to provide one million meals for malnourished and hungry children in D.C., Haiti, and elswhere.
Kid's Against Hunger is leading the effort. The international food relief organization based in New Hope, Minn., works in 26 states and sends food to 60 countries around the world. One-third of the packaged food is donated to local food pantries.
CBN News recently interviewed KAH spokesman Doctor Donald Burwell during the packing effort in Washington, D.C. He told us that 20,000 children worldwide die each day from lack of food and nutrition.
Here's our full interview with Burwell and teen volunteer Sean Foe.
There will be no fireworks or parades for these KAH volunteers, but they serve as a shining example of what makes our country great: how some charitable citizens are giving of themselves to free children from hunger as we celebrate America's independence!
Take a look.
