Kids Against Hunger - West Metro
Kids Against Hunger-West Metro (KAH-WM) is a volunteer-driven organization committed to inspiring, engaging, and educating people, starting with our children, by packaging life-saving meals that ease world hunger.
What new functionality we are looking for
The primary focus of the site should be to allow people to sign-up for packing food to distribute to those in need. In order to do that, people will probably need to be informed about what KAH-WM does, our goals and mission statement; content-focused.
The secondary purpose of the website is to allow people and companies to donate to the cause. It would be nice to have this as a prominent call-to-action (with volunteering being the main call-to-action). We would also like to be able to continue to feature the companies that are gracious enough to donate to the organization.
The tertiary purpose of the site is to provide information about upcoming events and news. One of the programs we run, to help raise money for funding the packing, is a family-friendly, annual event called the "Tonka Mud Run." It is important to have information and sign-up capabilities for the event on the website too.
The final purpose of the site is to allow people to learn about KAH-WM's volunteer opportunities within the organization (such as participating on the Board). We are always looking for people who are willing to donate their time to help out and it would be nice to make it easy for those with interest to learn about volunteer opportunities in a clear, well-designed site.
How the new functionality will help
A new website, with a great user experience, would allow us to have a clear and focused place for people to have access to information regarding our non-profit. The benefit of a professional, well-designed site, may help in gaining more corporate donations, more people willing to donate their time to help and excite people to want to participate in (or setting up) packing events!

Kids Against Hunger packages highly nutritious, life-saving meals for starving children and malnourished children and their families in developing countries and the United States. The goal of the organization is for its meals to provide a stable nutritional base from which recipient families can move their families from starvation to self-sufficiency. Kids Against Hunger accomplishes this by mobilizing the energy and caring of American children, teens, and adults on behalf of hungry children around the world. Kids Against Hunger seeks to end the literal hunger of children receiving the meals, but also satisfies a hunger among prosperous Americans - a hunger for meaning and contribution.
We accomplish our goal by:
Packaging highly nutritious meals made of a unique blend of rice, 52% protein soy, six blended dried vegetables, and flavoring fortified with 21 vitamins and minerals for as little as $0.15 per meal, receiving donations and sponsorship support to purchase supplies, and enlisting volunteers to package over 500,000 meals per year, lead packaging events, and serve on the board.
KAH-WM is a nondenominational, humanitarian organization with nonprofit status.
