(Johnson City, TN) Hand-of-Hope, a Johnson City based non-profit charity, will be sending meal kits to aid the victims of the recent fire in the Northern Alberta town of Fort McMurray. The authorities there have ordered the evacuation of about 88,000 people including the entire city of Fort McMurray. Reception centers for evacuees are being set up in Edmonton as people are bused to those locations.

These unique self-heating Meal Kits will provide nutritious Hot Food to the victims of this devastating disaster. You can be a donor of one or many Meal Kits that will feed one person for 3 days. Each meal kit comes at a cost of $35, representing $3.88 per meal, which will feed one person 3 meals a day for 3 days. These kits contain 6 Hot, Ready-to-Eat Meals, 3 granola cereal with milk latte, 3 apple granola bars, 3 utensil sets (spork, pepper, salt, napkin). 

Hand-of-Hope Project Director Jennifer Barnett states “This fire is such a devastation. Not only are these victims losing their homes, but they are also without food or water. In keeping with our mission we at Hand-of-Hope want to do all we can to help.“
