The mission of the Children’s Nutrition Fund (CNF) is to provide food and education for children who would otherwise have to go without in Central-Eastern Europe. Firstly in Hungary, and eventually within the entire region.
Distribution of food
This Christmas, 400 impoverished families from Tiszalúc did not have to suffer from the cold and hunger. Children’s Nutrition Fund has provided the 400 most poverty-stricken families of Tiszalúc with 10 million Hungarian Forints worth of firewood and food on December 5.
Gyermekétkeztetési Alapítvány (GYEA) was able to provide the impoverished families of Tiszalúc with food purchased partly from the donations kindly offered by the American people to Children’s Nutrition Fund USA.
At 11 am on December 5, 2013, 400 tons of firewood was distributed to 400 impoverished families at the local lumber yard. The wood was delivered to the homes of these families by the vehicles of the lumber yard. At 12 am, the same families received their share from the 15,000 kgs of food and cleaning supplies available at the local Cultural Center.
After this, the employees of Children’s Nutrition Fund Hungary distributed 400 boxes of Christmas candies between the poverty-stricken families, thus wishing a Merry Christmas to All.
At the event Mr. Gábor Király the Chairman of the Children’s Nutrition Fund quoted Martin Luther King Jr. in his brief speech: “Everybody can be great...because anybody can serve.”
