About Feed My Starving Children
Founded in 1987, Feed My Starving Children (FMSC) is a Christian non-profit that provides nutritionally complete meals specifically formulated for malnourished children. Their process is simple: Donations given fund the meal ingredients. Volunteers hand-pack the meals. Meals are donated to FMSC food partners around the world, where kids are fed and lives are saved!
BFC has invited Feed My Starving Children, a faith-based non-profit from Minnesota, to come to our Family Life Center on Saturday, August 24, to participate in a MobilePack event to pack over 100,000 meals for malnourished children. These meals have been designed by Cargill Foods, one of the top five grain companies in the world, for children in food-insecure areas of the world. These “Manna Packs,” packaged meals that require only water and heat, are provided free in 70 countries, including Eswatini. Anyone five years of age or older is invited to serve in a two-hour session on August 24, either from 10am to noon, or 1 to 3pm. We are looking for 544 volunteers from BFC and the community for this day, and we'd love for you to be a part!
*Volunteers under the age of 18 and serving as part of a non-family group (class group, youth group, etc.) must serve with an adult, observing the following minor-to-adult ratios:
Kindergarten through second grade: one student to one adult
Third through sixth grade: three students to one adult
Seventh through ninth grade: four students to one adult
Tenth through twelfth grade: five students to one adult
There is no minor-to-adult ratio for children serving with their own family.
