Feed My Starving Children
Update on Green Bay MobilePack Meals!!
From Feed My Starving Children staff: "A portion of your meals have shipped, so I don't have nearly as exciting of an update as I had hoped to have...There are 2 full containers worth of food from your event awaiting shipment and I will send another update when more have shipped! This time of year with the number of events we have our production tends to outpace our partners' abilities to ship/receive, so there's a bit of a delay in getting all meals shipped out.
To date, 972 boxes (239,112 meals) have shipped to Guatemala through our partner Buckner International. Buckner International transforms the lives of vulnerable children, enriches the lives of senior citizens and builds strong families through Christ-centered values. Buckner uses FMSC meals to serve these populations in schools, public and private institutions, communities and churches in Central America, South America and the Caribbean.
Here's a look back from 2017 on the impact FMSC meals have on communities:
Stay tuned for a more comprehensive update once the remaining meals from Green Bay are shipped out!"
754,272 Meals Packed!!!
3,492 boxes filled by 3,500 volunteers. That's 2,066 children feed a meal a day for an entire year!
Thank you to all of the 3,500 individuals who gave of their time to make this happen - we couldn't have done it without you!
“The generous will themselves be blessed, for they share their food with the poor.” – Proverbs 22:9
