Change This World enables volunteers to package healthy meals to send to children and families around the world.
Change This World provides meals to children and families in developing countries as a tool to bring hope and change lives. The goal is to reach young people before they need to be rescued--providing them with education, training, and an opportunity to break the cycle of hopelessness and poverty. Each meal delivers the ingredients needed to sustain life, and by partnering with strategic organizations the food also opens doors for education, practical training, the ability to plan for the future, and the strength to see it realized. These meals equal hope for communities around the corner and around the world.
Volunteers from businesses, schools, churches and various other groups join together to package these nutritionally balanced meals (25 cents per meal) in a fun, community-building environment. CTW provides the raw ingredients (specific recipe), the assembly lines and facilitates the packaging process. Through partnership, CTW provides holistic care to the communities where the food is distributed. Change This World has facilitated the packaging of over 9 million meals and provided more than 13,000 children and families with a daily meal for an entire year. Change This World’s primary partnerships are in Honduras, Burundi and Haiti.
