4th Annual Food 4others MobilePack: A HUGE SUCCESS!
On Friday & Saturday, May 9-10, 2014, 4others conduct Silicon Valley's 4th Food 4others MobilePack, in partnership with the nonprofit Feed My Starving Children (FMSC). This two-day effort brought together 1,100 local volunteers to hand-pack nutritious meals for severely malnourished children in the Philippines. Working together, our enthusiastic volunteers exceeded our meal goal of 225,000 meals and actually packed 233,280 meals -- enough to feed 639 children for an entire year! And thanks to the donations of MobilePack Partners and volunteers, all these meals have been fully funded and will soon be on their way to help with the recovery effort after Typhoon Haiyan in the Philippines!
We want to thank all who volunteered and donated to make this year's MobilePack a great success! We especially thank the San Jose Elks Lodge #522 for providing their excellent facilities for this event!

The impact of this food is truly amazing! 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. (1st pic: Before FMSC, 2nd pic: After 16 meals, 3rd pic: After 6 months)

Each year, this event has been a huge success as more volunteers -- from families, churches, businesses, schools, and civic groups -- join in the effort to raise funds and to hand-pack meals to make a difference. Working as teams in two-hour shifts, volunteers fill and seal bags of food, enjoying a fun atmosphere and the satisfaction of making a measurable impact on hunger.

On May 10-11, 2013, we conducted Silicon Valley's 3rd Food 4others MobilePack, in partnership with the nonprofit Feed My Starving Children (FMSC). This two-day effort brought together nearly 1,200 local volunteers to hand-pack nutritious meals for severely malnourished children in the developing world. Working together, these enthusiastic volunteers packed 264,384 meals, far exceeding this year's goal of 250,000! Within hours of the event, all the meals had been fully funded, thanks to the generous donations of our volunteers and partners, who contributed over $60,000.00. The meals will soon be shipped to international partners serving hungry children in The Philippines. The shipment will provide enough meals to feed 724 children for an entire year!
