Please join the Phoenix Philanthropists for this very fun and exciting family-friendly event at Feed My Starving Children at the new, expanded location in Mesa. With great music playing, in a very energized environment, we will be creating meals, called "Manna Pack Rice," which are distributed throughout the world to restore the health of children in the most severe state of malnutrition. In just an hour and a half, filled with great fun, you will truly help make a life-saving difference!
