Feed My Starving Children Through the Years
Between 2007 and 2013, 31,000 volunteers together packed more than 6,300,000 meals at our Feed My Starving Children packing events! Each year we, as part of the wealthiest nation in the world, become the hands and feet of Christ to help our brothers and sisters in the poorest nations in the world. We are bringing food to the hungry and hope to the weary – what a wonderful way to worship our Lord!
The first two years, the event was hosted in the Atrium and Teen Center in the Christian Life Center. As word spread and momentum grew, we quickly outgrew those spaces and moved the event to the Sanctuary. For the next four years, we transformed our Sanctuary into a food-packing, child-saving, life-changing space. For years, we’ve gathered as friends, relatives and co-workers to laugh, work together and feel our hearts fill as we pack each meal. You’ve also been very generous through financial gifts, which are indispensable in managing the expenses of a program of this magnitude.
Here’s a Feed My Starving Children overview:
- Food mixture was formulated by Minnesota food scientists
- Volunteers pack 100% of the food
- Each pack has a special nutritional mixture of rice, soy nuggets, vitamins, minerals and vegetables
- More than half of FMSC volunteers are under age 18
- 94 % of total donations go to directly to the feeding program
Special thanks to all who helped make this incredible event successful every year – volunteers, musicians, greeters, clean-up and set-up crews who helped transform our Sanctuary. We appreciate everything you’ve done. You are making a difference around the world – thank you!
