A “satellite” is an independent, mostly volunteer-driven nonprofit organization that is affiliated with Kids Against Hunger and has followed the process of becoming officially licensed to use the Kids Against Hunger name and food formula through the organization’s headquarters in New Hope, MN. Individuals at each satellite package the proprietary Kids Against Hunger food for the malnourished and starving children of the world.
A satellite must have a facility in which it can set up its manual packaging equipment and store supplies and the packaged food. The actual food packaging is done by volunteers and so the satellite needs the ability to attract, schedule, and supervise volunteer food packagers as well as the ability to fundraise to cover the cost of the ingredients used.
