About the Food

18,000 children die every day from starvation. Malnutrition is devastating to a child. It causes brain damage, tooth decay, stunted growth, confusion, weakness, anemia, bone loss, vision and digestion troubles, and eventually death. However, through our partnership with Feed My Starving Children (FMSC), we can provide nutritious meals designed to give a child the vitamins and minerals needed to battle malnutrition and its effects. The rice base makes it easily digestible so the nutrition is utilized by even the most malnourished child.

FMSC has worked to develop a food mixture that would be easy and safe to transport, simple to make with only boiling water, and culturally acceptable worldwide. The formula for these meals was developed by food scientists from Cargill and General Mills and consists of the following:

  • Rice, the most widely accepted grain around the world
  • Extruded soy nuggets, providing maximum protein at lowest cost
  • 20 vitamins and minerals with a vegetarian flavoring to give growing children the critical nutritional elements they need
  • Dehydrated vegetables for flavor and nutrition
  • FMSC food contains all of the nutrients a malnourished child needs not only to survive but to thrive. And the best part? Each meal costs only 22 cents to produce! Provide a meal today! 100% of the funds we receive will go directly to providing meals to starving children. See what it's all about: Download the BROCHURE.

    True Story: Omar, from El Salvador, weighed only 19 pounds at 8 years old. On the brink of death, Omar was provided with FMSC's all-vegetarian MannaPack Rice meals, developed by food scientists to quickly reverse and prevent malnutrition. 6 months and only $40 later, Omar weighed a healthy 73 pounds! See the before & after photos of Omar.
