How can I serve others? #fmsc

This weekend my family and church had the opportunity to participate in an awesome event. We hosted a Feed My Starving Children Mobile Pack.

…I therefore command you, “Open your hand to the poor and needy neighbor in your land.” Deuteronomy 15:1120151114_161739_resized

Feed My Starving Children is a non-profit Christian organization committed to feeding God’s children hungry in body and spirit. The approach is simple: children and adults hand-pack meals specifically formulated for malnourished children, and we ship these meals to our distribution partners.

Feed My Starving Children provides life-saving meals to people who need them most all over the world — from countries affected by natural disaster to places enduring economic despair.  FMSC meals have been distributed in nearly 70 countries through missionary partnerships at orphanages, schools, clinics, refugee camps and malnourishment centers.

FMSC believes in sustainability – they don’t simply send one shipment of food to a country. Instead, they continue to provide their mission partners with the food they need to maintain their feeding programs.

At a mobile pack, FMSC provides all the materials necessary to host an event. The ingredients include veggies, soy, rice, protein. Each bag contains 6 meals.

In just 2 hours, my family along with 120 other volunteers packaged enough to feed 99 children one meal a day for a year. After 8 packing sessions, our church was able to provide meals for 750 children for a year!

If your church or organization would like to host an event, check out Feed My Starving Children Mobile Pack .

If you are local to the MD, VA, Washington D.C. area, I’d like to share information about an event this Spring. At #2016FoodFight there will be a huge packing session at the Dulles Expo Center in Chantilly, VA where volunteers from churches in the area will pack 5 million meals for Feed My Starving Children.

Would you consider joining us in the battle to end hunger?

“When a poor person dies of hunger, it has not happened because God did not take care of him or her. It has happened because neither you nor I wanted to give that person what he or she needed.Mother Teresa
