St. Louis, MO (KTVI – FOX2now.com) – Meds & Food for Kids is a non-profit organization based in St. Louis.

The group figures there are about 250,000 malnourished children in Haiti and says those numbers are about to go up. Tom Stehl with Meds and Food for Kids talked about how the organization is bracing for an increase in demand and how you can help.
Meds & Food for Kids saves the lives of Haiti’s malnourished children by producing and distributing highly nutritious foods, including Medika Mamba, a Ready-to-Use Therapeutic Food endorsed by the World Health Organization and UNICEF.
