Feed My Starving Children (FMSC) is a Christian non-profit committed to feeding God’s children hungry in body and spirit.
HOPE FOR KIDS TO THRIVE | To a starving child, hope can only begin with a reliable source of nutricious food. FMSC exists to provide this hope in the name of Jesus. Nutricious food equips kids to grow up strong in body and spirit, learn in school and develop to their full potential.
VOLUNTEERS HAND-PACK MEALS | Kids and adults of all ages engage in a unique and powerful volunteer experience as they work together to hand-pack nutricious FMSC MannaPack™ meals specifically designed to improve the lives of undernourished children around the world.
YOUR HANDS REACHING FURTHER | MobilePack events connect volunteers from across the United States to children around the world. CHurches, businesses, community groups and schools host these food packing evnets to fost teamwork and unity, while making a difference in the fight against hunger.
MEALS SHIPPED WORLDWIDE | FMSC meals are donated to partners around the world who distribute them every day in schools, orphanages, clinics and feeding programs to deliver hope.
BUILDING STRONG COMMUNITIES | The reliable provision of food empowers a community to focus on becoming self reliant. FMSC meals act as a bridge to create local food security and ensure future generations thrive.
THE PRICE OF A MEAL | Every day, FMSC produces enough food for 420,000 children. Each of these meals costs less than a quarter to make and more than 90% of total donations supports the food program.
NUTRITIOUS FOOD FOR ANY CULTURE | Founded in 1987, FMSC is the original and largest supplier of nutritionally complete, packaged dry meals for the world’s hungry.
Food scientists developed the all-vegetarian MannaPack™ Rice meals to quickly reverse and prevent malnutrition. A power-packed formula of 20 vitamins and minerals–added to dried vegetables, soy protein, and rice–provided complete nutrition for a child to grow and thrive.
THE HUNGER PROBLEM | 6.9 million kids under age 5 die each year in developing countries. Malnutrition and hunger-related diseases cause one-third of these deaths. That’s 6,200 children who die each day from hunger. That number has dropped from 18,000 in 1990 thanks to the efforts of organizations like FMSC–but it is still too large.
