Location: Grand Island

Total Budget: $1,250

Areas of Focus: Disease prevention and treatment, Maternal and child health

Activity Type: Health: General

Summary: To cooperate and support the efforts of Mercy Meals providing affordable high quality nutrition both domestic and international


Nutrition has been identified as a primary limiting factor in improving the health and life expectancy in many developing nations. Mercy meals of Grand Island is a non- profit organization that allows volunteers to package nourishing food that will be delivered by Orphan Grain Train to children in need throughout the world. Orphanages, refugee camps, feeding centers, disaster relief centers, and local food pantries, have been recent recipients of Mercy meals. In addition Mercy meals is making provisions to support Salvation Army food bank, as well as the backpack programs in Grand Island and other area schools.

In the past our club has participated in the packaging efforts of Mercy Meals at their facility in Grand Island. This grant will provide funding for over 10,000 nutrient dense meals at a cost of $.12 per meal.

In the past Mercy Meals has provided extensive nutritional assistance to one of our Club members, Dr. Marjie Heier, who oversees the Chifundo Medical Hospital in Zambia Africa. Dr. Heier has documented the effects of good nutrition in improving the health outcomes of her patients.
