About the Food
The 300,000+ meals to be packaged by volunteers are high protein, consist of a rice/soy mixture with added dehydrated vegetables, chicken flavoring, salt, and are fortified with 21 essential vitamins.
Each package contains six nutritious servings, at a cost of approximately 15¢ per serving!
The meals are prepared using boiling water, which not only ensures a hot meal, but purifies the water, which may be contaminated. The fortified rice-soy meals have a shelf life of three to five years, which makes extended storage possible. This allows the meals to be strategically stockpiled for emergency use.
