2015 Food 4others MobilePack: Passing the Millionth Meal Mark!
On May 2nd through May 4th, 4others conducted Silicon Valley's 5th Food 4others MobilePack, in partnership with the nonprofit Feed My Starving Children (FMSC). 1,300 local volunteers worked together to hand-pack nutritious meals for severely malnourished children in the developing world. Our enthusiastic volunteers hand-packed a total of 272,160 life-saving meals to fill an entire 40-foot shipping container with enough meals to feed 745 children for one year!
Volunteers in our Sunday afternoon session actually packed our millionth meal as a community! Now, our collective total over 5 years of Food 4others MobilePacks is 1,141,344 meals! What a huge milestone -- one that we could never have passed without the passionate support of all our partners and volunteers. And thanks to the donations from MobilePack Partners and volunteers, all these meals have been fully funded! SPECIAL THANKS to our MobilePack Partners (below) who greatly contributed to this year's success. Here's to the next million meals!
