Eighty-nine people registered, but about 140 arrived to help feed 35 children in a Tanzanian orphanage a meal a day for a year.

With the help of the Mukwonago Rotary Club and the Mukwonago High School Key Club and other high school groups, the nonprofit organization Simple Hope will be able to continue its mission to "save and empower lives through faith, nutritious food, clean water, education, microcredit programs and other identified long-term sustainable processes."

Co-founders Karen Puhl and Pam Schwalbach both served others in various capacities through food pantries, local missions and mission trips. In 2009 after each traveled to different parts of Africa, they joined forces to fulfill their calling of feeding the hungry of Africa with nutritious meals packaged by volunteers like those in Mukwonago.

Simple Hope was founded in 2010 as a Christian non-profit working to provide hope to compromised communities in rural Tanzania, East Africa.
