“This generous donation of over 30,000 boxes means that we can put more of our resources into the food that goes inside the box, instead of just the box itself," say Dave Phillips, President, Children's Hunger Fund.

“The key to our work is a 20 lb. box of food delivered to the home of a needy family. We are so grateful to the generosity of Smurfit Kappa for providing the boxes that we can fill with food,” says Dave Phillips, Founder and President of Children’s Hunger Fund.
Smurfit Kappa is one of the world’s leading suppliers of paper-based packaging, currently in over 32 countries.
“We are proud to collaborate with proven charities like Children’s Hunger Fund, giving back to the communities is part of the Smurfit Kappa Orange County DNA,” says Greg Hall, CEO of Smurfit Kappa Orange County. “Sustained leadership means being the best at paper packaging products but equally important is to take ownership of corporate social responsibility.”
The donation of boxes represents a value of over $28,000. The boxes are filled in CHF’s regional distribution centers and sent out locally on trucks or on sea containers to other countries. Each box provides about 40 meals for a family.
Children’s Hunger Fund has committed itself to gospel-centered mercy ministry for over twenty years. In all, CHF has distributed more than 1 billion dollars in food and other resources, serving the needs of more than 20 million children throughout the U.S. and in seventy-two countries worldwide. Since 1991, 99% of CHF's total revenue has been used for programs helping kids.
