on each bag before it is filled with food.

About Starving Children Organization:

www.fmsc.org

Founded in 1987, 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 nearly 70 countries around the world.

With God’s help, Feed My Starving Children (FMSC) will strive to

eliminate starvation in children throughout the world by helping to

instill compassion in people to hear and respond to the cries of those

in need.

Feeding God’s Starving Children Hungry in Body and Spirit

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 – we don’t simply send one shipment of

food to a country. Instead, we continue to provide our mission partners

with the food they need to maintain their feeding programs

    Received email today from FMSC wanted to share:

    The final number for the weekend’s Feed My Starving Children Mobile Meal pack event was 1,003,104 meals packed.
    The food is already on its way with half going out on Monday to Guatemala and Belize while the other half is shipping out today to Haiti and Dominica. Without your help, this incredible event could never been as successful as it was. So on behalf of FMSC, thank you so very, very much.
