Disaster often strikes without warning or time for preparation. The results, as we have recently witnessed, can be devastating. The Ready Relief mission is to insure that schools, with all their children and staff, are nutritionally sustained in a healthy and safe manner during a time of unexpected crisis. We seek to accomplish this mission by providing emergency food that is easily accessible, nutritionally balanced, flavorful, and cost effective.
Ready Relief brings the food packaging operation to your school
with ingredients and supplies enough to provide for every student
and staff member. Similar to an assembly line, students come to
the set-up food packaging area, usually in a gymnasium or cafeteria,
in 30-minute shifts and package their own emergency food.
The meals consist of rice, protein-packed lentils, dehydrated vegetables, and chicken-flavored (a vegetarian blend/mix with no MSG) multi-vitamin powder.
at your school is then stored at your school for one year.
Ready Relief food is accessible and available for emergency use during
that school year. You are now Ready for Today!
Before leaving your school, the Ready Relief team will schedule
another packaging date with you for the following year. At the time
of your second event, if the food from the prior year was not used,
it is re-stocked into the COTN truck for shipment overseas to help
feed starving children in Africa and the Dominican Republic. In the
meantime, your new students are enjoying their opportunity to package
food for their new school year. The end of this cycle gives your
school and your students the opportunity to not only become more civic
minded by helping prepare themselves for a disaster, but also globally
minded, with a greater awareness of world poverty and hunger. Their
‘hands-on’ participation will broaden their understanding and increase
their compassion capability for the world’s needy children. You have
now provided Relief for Tomorrow!
