The event begins at 6 p.m. and will feature an auction and other ways for you to support Feed My Starving Children. Stay tuned for more details!
What is Feed My Starving Children?
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 permanent warehouses in Minnesota, Illinois and Arizone, where volunteers come to pack nutritious meals for starving kids around the world. However, Feed My Starving Children partners with local groups like our all-volunteer Sacramento/Placer group to host MobilePack Events in various cities across the United States, which is what we are hosting again this year in Rocklin.
The MobilePack events rely 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.
FMSC feeds orphans and malnourished children around the world, and also responds to global catastrophes. FMSC was 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 and the typhoon in the Philippines, FMSC was able to ship hundreds of thousands of meals to aid in feeding those without food and water.

The production of each meal costs only 22¢; however, the total cost adds up quickly when shipping hundreds of thousands of meals. For example, the price to ship 300,000 meals would be $66,000.
The Placer/Sacramento FMSC MobilePack is looking for community partners willing to financially support the packing of these meals; our partners will be featured prominently in our marketing materials to a large local population. Promote your organization through partnering with our MobilePack and the community, while providing for children worldwide.
Join others in the community and give life-saving support to starving children across the globe. Your local support has a global impact, saving lives through the donation of your time and resources.
