Photo Example: WRIGHT-PATTERSON AIR FORCE BASE, Ohio – Ten pallets containing approximately 90,000 pounds of dried and sealed food packets, the equivalent of 541,728 meals, are loaded onto a 445th Airlift Wing C-17 Globemaster III June 14 for delivery to Haiti. The food, provided by Kids Against Hunger, a ministry of A Child’s Hope International from Cincinnati, is being transported to Haiti as part of the Denton Program. The Denton Program is administered by the U.S. Agency for International Development, Department of State and Department of Defense. This allows U.S. based non-governmental sources to transport humanitarian aid at little or no cost to the donor, while simultaneously putting the extra space on U.S. military transport assets to good use.
