Wright-Patt unit to take meals to Haiti

DAYTON, OHIO — A unit from Ohio’s largest military base plans to deliver more than 500 meals from a nonprofit group for residents of Haiti.

Officials at Wright-Patterson Air Force base near Dayton said a 445th Airlift Wing unit will leave Friday morning to deliver about 541,000 meals consisting of dried and sealed food packets to the impoverished country.

Wright-Patterson officials said the food is provided by Kids Against Hunger, a ministry of A Child’s Hope International from Cincinnati. They said it is part of a program that allows U.S. based nongovernmental sources to transport humanitarian aid at little or no cost. It also puts extra space on U.S. military transport equipment to good use.

The program is administered by the U.S. Agency for International Development and the departments of State and Defense.
