About Feed My Starving Children
Feed My Starving Children is a charity that strives to feed children in communities around the world faced with hunger. They rely on donations from people and organizations, and 90% of it is used to feed kids in need, overhead doesn’t eat up the majority of what you donate, which is often the case with similar organizations. The meals are designed to provide the most nutrition possible, to not only feed kids but help reverse the prolonged undernutrition many have been faced with. Each meal only costs 30 cents, so your donations can actually go a long way. Volunteers will prepare and pack these Mannapack® meals at permanent stations and mobile units across the country.
We’ve hosted events before to raise money for this organization and will be doing so again soon! These meals will be sent to schools, clinics, orphanages, and homes across the world, helping the most vulnerable in our community. Each year, millions of kids die from preventable issues, often exacerbated by persistent hunger. We support this group because they provide oral results for kids in need, and their meals have been specifically designed by food scientists and nutritional professionals to meet the needs of kids suffering from malnutrition, so they can thrive again, focusing on school and breaking the cycle of poverty.
You can Help Too!
We’ll have more information about our event soon, but in the meantime, you can help by donating to them! Even a small donation can make a huge difference.
