A large portion of the meals that we packed just weeks ago will be arriving in the Philippines the first week of December. Little did we know when we were packing those meals that it would so quickly be needed as a result of the strongest typhoon in history tragically hitting their country. THANK YOU ALL FOR PACKING.
Some FMSC meals are already on the ground there. We have three distribution partners in the Philippines - because they do ongoing work in those regions they quickly were able to supply half a million meals to typhoon survivors from their existing inventory.
The need is still great - they have asked for another 2.5 million meals to be sent from FMSC which will feed 600,000 people who are reported to be homeless. The need for our food is likely to grow and continue since much of the Philippines' rice crops have been devastated or destroyed. WE NEED YOUR HELP TO SEND MORE MEALS NOW!
There are several ways you can donate:
1. Text REBUILD to 50555 to give $10 to FMSC (reply YES to confirm you donation).
2. DONATE here!
Thank you to everyone who donates - and for caring for those less fortunate.

GIVE TO COVER THE COST OF MEALS WE PACKED!
While the packing is over, we are continuing to raise money for the meals we packed! At 22 cents per meal, the amount we are trying to raise adds up -- to $110,000 in fact. Easy to give by clicking on link below:
Many have asked where the meals that we packed in October will go. Here is an exact breakdown for you:
3 Days, 2,500 Volunteers and 500,000 Meals!
Feed My Starving Children returned to the Sacramento Region and met the goal to pack more than 500,000 meals! In fact, we topped out at 520,922 -- bringing our total over 4 years to more than 1.8 million meals!
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 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 would 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 hungry children 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 used the spacious facilities at William Jessup University to do our packing. Thank you to William Jessup for opening up its large doors for our packing!
