Feed My Starving Children 1

Feed My Starving Children (FMSC) has tackled world hunger since 1987 by sending volunteer-packed, nutritious meals to 70 countries. These meals are specifically designed to reverse and prevent malnutrition and are used in schools, orphanages, clinics and feeding programs to break the cycle of poverty. In 2014, FMSC welcomed nearly 900,000 volunteers to pack more than 229 million meals through its permanent sites and nationwide MobilePack program. The Minnesota-based charity spends 92% of total donations directly on feeding the hungry and has earned the highest 4-star rating from Charity Navigator for 10 consecutive years. Visit fmsc.org for more information.

During your packing session you will be participating in an assembly line process. With the help of volunteers, dry ingredients are poured into bags, the bags are weighed and sealed, then boxed and put onto pallets. If we have volunteers that are unable to stand for long periods of time, they are welcome to sit at tables and label bags. Your packing session includes a brief orientation and video followed by packing instructions. Your packing shift will conclude with a short closing. During that time you will learn how many meals you and your fellow volunteers have packed.

For every 3-5 students, we will need 1 adult chaperone. If you are interested in being a chaperone, please use the registration links below to sign up and be sure to choose ADULT when registering*. Should we have too many chaperones register, we will adjust this number by removing later registrations based on when they were received.
