3 Days, 2,500 Volunteers, $110,000 in Donations,
and 500,000 Meals!
Feed My Starving Children is returning to the Sacramento Region with the goal of packing 500,000 specially-formulated meals to be distributed to starving children in nearly 70 countries around the world. This highly-ranked non-profit organization has already produced over 1.2 Million meals with the help of Sacramento Region volunteers alone.
This event, called a MobilePack, relies on the support of the community to provide volunteers to actually pack-by-hand each of these meals, as well as to financially support the purchasing of the ingredients which go into each meal.
The Sacramento Region Feed My Starving Children MobilePack will need 2,500 volunteers willing to participate in the event which runs from Thursday, October 24 thru Saturday, October 26. Volunteer shifts are only 2-hours and can be a great opportunity to spend quality time with family, friends, or even people from your organization.
The production of each meal costs only 22¢; however, with 500,000 meals the cost adds up to $110,000. The Sacramento FMSC is looking for community partners willing to financially support the packing of these meals; our partners will be featured prominently in Sacramento FMSC marketing materials to a large local population. Promote your organization through partnering with Sacramento FMSC and the community, while providing for children worldwide.
Join others in the community and to give life-saving support to starving children across the globe. Your local support has a global impact, save lives through the donation of your time and resources.
If you could like to donate towards the meals that we pack at our event this year, please make checks payable to FMSC and send your check to:

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 in our community come together, regardless of race or religion, and we hand-pack meals specifically formulated for malnourished children. These are shipped to nearly 70 countries around the world.
FMSC has 4 permanent warehouses; two in Minneapolis and two in Chicago, where volunteers come six days a week to pack nutritious meals for starving kids around the world. However, they also will host MobilePack Events in various cities across the United States, which is what we are hosting again this year in Rocklin.
In addition to feeding orphans and malnourished children around the world, FMSC also responds to global catastrophes as well. They were able to donate meals to the devastated people in and around New Orleans after Hurricane Katrina. Within 24 hours of the Haiti earthquake, FMSC had 600,000 meals on the ground to feed the people affected by the devastation. Immediately after the earthquake and tsunami in Japan, FMSC was able to ship over a half-million meals to the people of Japan to aid in feeding those without food and water.
We will again be utilizing the spacious facilities at William Jessup University but this year we will be in the large and upgraded Academic Warehouse. This will allow for even more volunteers to join in on the MobilePack. Adjacent to Highway 65 off of Sunset Avenue in Rocklin, our location should offer easier access. Once again....come join us for "A Half Million at William", as we join together to pack another 500,000 meals in 2013.
