Feed My Starving Children
"Founded in 1987, Feed My Starving Children (FMSC) is a Christian non-profit organization committed to feeding God's children hungry in body and spirit. Volunteers hand-pack meals specially formulated for malnourished children, which are sent to partners around the world where they are used to operate orphanages, schools, clinics and feeding programs to break the cycle of poverty. FMSC food has reached nearly 70 countries."
"With God's help, FMSC will strive to eliminate starvation in children throughout the world by helping to install compassion in people to hear and respond to the cries of those in need."
2018 Green Bay MobilePack Kickoff Event
For all those who enjoyed the Feed My Starving Children MobilePack and those who couldn't make it there is a fun, new event this year. Thrivent Financial is hosting a kickoff event Tuesday, November 28 for our 2018 MobilePack. There will be a number of informational tables, speakers, appetizers and plans for growing the event next year. There will also be a slide show with pictures from the event and from a Haiti trip with Feed My Starving Children. It will be a great opportunity to celebrate our success and learn more about FMSC and opportunities to support our MobilePack.
Thrivent is also matching up to $10,000 all donations made next Tuesday which is Giving Tuesday. You can donate at the event or online.
Feed My Starving Children – Green Bay MobilePack Follow up
Thank you to all of those who were able to participate in the MobilePack for Feed My Starving Children October 2nd - 5th at Green Bay Community Church.
During the MobilePack each person packed about $50 worth of materials, which was enough food to provide a meal for 227 children. Our Generations of Faith group had 70 individuals volunteer. Doing the math, that means our GOF family packed enough food to provide a meal for 15,890 children! How’s that for a great way to spend a couple hours? We did not have to pay for everything we used during our pack, but every donation helped the overall event meet its budget.
If you would still like to donate towards the cost of the food we packed, drop off a check at the parish office (checks made payable to St. Matthew Parish with FMSC in the memo line) or give directly through the Feed My Starving Children website. Click here for the donation page from the Green Bay MobilePack. Remember that every pack made utilizes about 25 cents worth of ingredients. That 25 cents will feed a child for almost a week, or provide a meal for a family of six!
Our pictures from the event are on the parish Facebook page. Be sure to check them out! We worked hard, had fun, rocked our hairnets AND best of all helped Green Bay meet it’s goal of packing at least 550,000 meals in the 4 day event!
How it Works
Donations Make a donation today!
All meals are paid for by people who donate to Feed My Starving Children. FMSC receives no government aid - relying on the generosity of individuals to pay for the food sent around the world to feed malnourished children. Each meal costs less than 25 cents. More than 90% of total donations are spent directly on food production.
Volunteers Hand-pack Meals
Kids and adults of all ages hand-pack nutritious MannaPack™ meals specifically designed to reverse malnutrition. Volunteering occurs at our permanent sites and hundreds of MobilePack™ events nationwide. Over 1.1 million individuals volunteered last year! Green Bay Community Church hosted Green Bay MobilePack #1710-116AU October 2nd - 5th, 2017.
Meals are Shipped Around the World
FMSC partners with organizations all over the world. Meals are donated to these mission and humanitarian organizations. As of last year, over 99% of all meals reached their destination. Read more about partner organizations.
What is a MobilePack?
MobilePack events take place across the United States throughout the year. Over 250 MobilePack events were held last year! Each MobilePack event needs at least 2,500 volunteers to pack over 500,000 meals. There are many ways to volunteer at a MobilePack event, something for everyone regardless of age, ability, or limitation.
At each MobilePack event meals, that are specifically formulated for malnourished children, are hand-packed by hundreds of volunteers. These meals are then shipped all over the globe. More information and FAQs.
Feed My Starving Children invites adults and older children to participate in these events by packing food or donating funds.
