Feed My Starving Children
You did it! FMSC MobilePack: Gateway was a huge success. As shown in the numbers below, God’s will continues to be done here on Earth, thanks to your help. Thank you to all who have joined in this mission, we will see you next year!
This is why we’re involved.
6,200 children die from hunger-related causes every day (approximately 2 million per year), but we can make a difference!
FMSC’s mission is “Feeding God’s children – hungry in body and spirit” – in FY2018-19, FMSC produced 365 million meals with the help of 1.3 million volunteers, and 99.8 percent
reached their intended destination.
FMSC has received Charity Navigator’s highest 4-star rating for 14 consecutive years – 91 percent of all FMSC funds go directly toward feeding children in need, and 100 percent of donations to the Gateway MobilePack go toward purchasing meal ingredients.
Each FMSC meal costs less than $0.25, and $80 will pay for 365 meals to feed a starving child for a year.
This is a service opportunity where families can work together. There are standing and seated jobs, and anyone age 5+ can help.
Let’s Feed More – Near and Far
In addition to packing meals for Feed My Starving Children, we’re collecting food for Operation Food Search to help with local hunger needs.
When you arrive to volunteer during our MobilePack, we’ll have OFS donation areas set up.
We recommend you bring some of their most wanted items:
Light tuna/salmon (cans & pouches) and canned chicken
Soup, chili, stews with meat/beans (meal in a can)
Canned fruit in natural juices (especially pop-top cans)
Diced tomatoes, tomato paste, canned spaghetti sauce
Pancake mix: “Complete” and Bisquick
Breakfast cereal (Cheerios/Honey Nut Cheerios preferred, including store brands)
Ziplock bags: freezer gallon & quart sizes
Can openers: swing-a-way brand preferred
Deodorant, toothbrushes and toothpaste
Please – no glass containers and no Ramen noodles.
Thanks for helping us meet food needs locally and abroad!
