Feed My Starving Children (FMSC) "Big Pack Challenge"

Feed My Starving Children (FMSC) is an organization where volunteers come together to package meals containing rice, soy, vegetables and vitamins. These packaged meals are then sent all over the world to feed hungry children.

Thank you to everyone who was able to help in December. We met the challenge and packed 544,320 meals, 2,520 boxes of food in total, which will feed 1491 kids a meal every day for a year!

Check out the Feed My Starving Children website for future opportunities as we continue to pack meals for starving children throughout the coming year.
