Giving Back: Meal Packing Events
Since 2008 Captain Dave’s has sponsored the purchase and packing of over 500,000 meals with Kids Around the World, a non-profit organization dedicated to helping children and families who have been affected by war, poverty, illness, and natural disasters. Kids Around the World have provided much needed nourishing food to children in 18 different countries, including the U.S. and developing countries across the globe.
Prior to our partnership with Kids Around the World, we partnered with World Vision where half the proceeds from Capt. Dave’s documentary film were used to help a small village called Gangawako located in Malawi (Central Africa). The village has about 1,100 people, many of them orphaned by AIDS. Some of the money was used to help build a better irrigation system to increase their harvests and some of it was used for health care, school supplies and education.
