DKI Prepares 10,000 Meals for Families in Need
February 24, 2016 – On Saturday, February 20, DKI, North America’s largest disaster restoration contracting organization, helped prepare 10,000 meals for starving children at Insights 2016’s sponsored Feeding Children Everywhere: Hunger Project.
FCE is a non-profit organization that travels to areas throughout the world to share awareness about world hunger and assemble healthy meals for families in need. Meals packaged at their Hunger Projects are distributed throughout the United States and internationally.
From 1:30 PM until 6:00 PM ET, all Insights 2016 Property Restoration Conference and Trade Show attendees were invited to volunteer and help package 10,000 meals to be distributed to food pantries, hospitality centers and educational facilities around the local Osceola, FL region.
Several DKI corporate and DKI member company employees arrived early to Insights 2016, which officially kicked off on Sunday, February 21 in Kissimee, FL, to assist with the hunger project. Alongside other Insights 2016 attendees, they wore hairnets and worked as a team in two assembly lines to package, weigh, secure and box bags of lentils, white rice, Pink Himalayan salt and dehydrated vegetables. Through this signature lentil casserole or soup, families are provided with sufficient protein, fiber, carbohydrates, vitamins and minerals for a healthy daily diet.
Through their dedication and collaboration, the team of approximately 15 volunteers completed the 10,000 packaged meals in less than two hours.
“It is people like DKI who make it possible for us to make a tangible difference and change stories all around the world. From our FCE family and those that we serve, we thank you,” said the team of Feeding Children Everywhere.
