WRIGHT-PATTERSON AIR FORCE BASE, Ohio -- A 445th Airlift Wing C-17 Globemaster III delivered more than 102,000 pounds worth of rice and beans to Haiti May 26, as part of the Denton Program. The food was provided by Kids Against Hunger, a ministry of A Child's Hope International from Cincinnati, Ohio.

Fifteen pallets of the food items, equating to 615,000 meals, were loaded into the cargo area of the C-17 and transported to the impoverished country.

According to its website, the purpose of the Denton Program is to allow 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. This program is jointly administered by the U.S. Agency for International Development, Department of State and Department of Defense.
