Feed My Starving Children (FMSC) is a non-profit Christian organization committed to feeding God’s children hungry in body & spirit. The approach is simple: children & adults hand-pack meals specifically formulated for malnourished children, & then ship these meals to nearly 70 countries around the world, where meals are then distributed thru partner ministries in those areas.Our goal in January is to prepare and pack 350,000 meals for distribution by FMSC. The event will consist of Ten (10) two-hour shifts with approximately 35,000 meals prepared & packed per shift. Each meal costs 22 cents to pack & send, so we will need $77,000 to fund this event.
