Feed My Starving Children

Questions about global resources, wealth distribution, and hunger are big issues to ponder, especially for children. But volunteering can be used as a teachable moment. Feed My Starving Children offers a unique opportunity for students to learn about the power and joy of giving. This charity has been fighting world hunger for nearly 30 years, using volunteers to pack nutritious meals that are specially formulated to help malnourished children. The meals are sent to orphanages, schools, clinics, refugee camps, and feeding programs around the world. Feed My Starving Children has six permanent food-packing sites (in Michigan, Illinois, and Arizona), and a MobilePackTM program that travels around the country. They give volunteers of all ages (5 and up) a chance to get outside of themselves and work on packing food for people who need it, while having fun doing it. For more information on how to volunteer, visit fmsc.org. See also their ideas on great ways to raise donations: http://fmsc.org/document.doc?id=177
