Welcome to IT TAKES A VILLAGE: FEED MY STARVING CHILDREN headquarters!
On April 8 and 9, in five 2-hour shifts, 1,000 volunteers of all ages will hand-pack 225,000 meals consisting of vitamins, dehydrated vegetables, soy and rice which will be shipped to one of 70 developing nations. The price of each meal's ingredients is 22 cents - or $50,000.
Feed My Starving Children (FMSC) is a Minnesota-based Christian non-profit 501(c)(3) organization that is dedicated to getting nutrition to starving and malnourished children all over the world. The recipient of Four Stars from Charity Navigator for the 9th consecutive year, FMSC ranks higher than 99% of all rated charities in trustworthiness and efficiency.
FMSC brings all ingredients and supplies to us. Hosted by the First Presbyterian Church of Haddonfield, the meals are packed assembly-line style by small groups in the gymnasium of the Haddonfield Middle School. Participants include families, civic organizations, clubs, schools, churches and synagogues, and businesses.
FMSC provides a deeply meaningful service opportunity. Participants are able to work together for a finite period of time and with a specific, high-value outcome. At the end of every volunteer session the group knows exactly how many meals were produced to eliminate hunger in the world. In a uniquely experiential and fun way, the FMSC volunteer experience engages hearts, hands, and minds and fulfills the need of the giver to give.
