Long time friends Kory McLaughlin and Mike Wallis wanted to change their paths in life and truly make a difference.

“I definitely was not fulfilled with what I was doing in my life,” said McLaughlin. “I wanted to do something greater.”

The two came up with Tenfed, a clothing line that had style and meaning. For every item sold, ten meals are provided to feed hungry children around the world with the help of their partner, Kids Against Hunger Canada. The charity packages and ships highly nutritious, life-saving meals to starving and malnourished children within Canada and developing countries.

“The statistic is one child dies about every six seconds from malnutrition,” said Carl Nabein, executive director of Kids Against Hunger Canada. “Because of Tenfed’s efforts in the last year they have contributed over 20,000 meals for starving children.”

Tenfed offers simple everyday clothing from t-shirts to hoodies to caps, all made here at home and available in select stores. Their mission is simple: To feed as many hungry children as possible.

“It is just a crazy feeling to be able to know that we are helping,” said McLaughlin.
