Thank you! Our MobilePack at William Jessup University in Rocklin packed more meals than we have in any of our seven prior years — a total of 606,528 meals for malnourished children in need! We recently learned that the meals are headed to Venture ministries in Thailand, Care Ministries in The Philippines, and Convoy of Hope in El Salvador. What began in Rocklin is now impacting children in need around the world.
We have so many to thank for making all this possible — the nearly 3,000 volunteers who turned out to pack, our organizing team and our great sponsors. A special thank you to our first-ever 100,000 meals sponsor — Moseley Collins Law Firm.
Our MobilePack wouldn’t be possible without the support of many sponsors. To the right, you’ll see all sponsors for this year’s MobilePack. If you know them or have an opportunity to interact with the, please extend your thanks and appreciation for their support of the MobilePack. Interested in sponsoring in 2018?

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.
Partner With Us
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.
