Feed My Starving Children
Feed My Starving Children (FMSC) is a Christian hunger relief ministry based in Minnesota. FMSC was recently named the nation's fastest growing charity by Charity Navigator, a leading non-profit rating organization. Founded in 1987, FMSC has seen its fastest expansion since recommitment as a Christian-based non-profit in 2003.
Since then, average year-to-year growth has been 76 percent—from three million meals in 2003 to 153 million in 2012. One packing site has expanded to six located in Minnesota, Illinois, and Arizona, along with a nationwide mobile packing program that has brought portable packing to 30+ states. All food is funded by donors and packed by community volunteers. In fact, in 2013, FMSC received the highest 4-star rating from Charity Navigator for the eighth straight year! Charity Navigator, the nation's toughest charity watchdog, also ranked FMSC among the Top 10 "Highly Rated Charities Relying on Private Contributions."
Feed My Starving Children provides a team-building environment where people of all ages can come together for a common cause: packing nutritious, life-saving meals for starving children. These meals are then shipped to nearly 70 countries around the world, truly offering hope to the hungry.

Ingredients are purchased entirely through the generosity of donors. With each FMSC meal costing only 22 cents to produce and 93% of all donations going directly to the feeding program, gifts of all sizes go a long way in the fight against world hunger.
Packing & Distribution
Meals are hand-packed by children and adults at FMSC's five permanent sites around the country and through FMSC's nation-wide MobilePack program, such as the Food 4others MobilePack. The meals are then distributed in orphanages, schools, and relief centers by partner organizations around the world. FMSC's goal is to provide children the nutrition they need, allowing them to reach their God-given potential.
Nearly 16,000 children die each day from starvation or starvation-related causes. You can fight world hunger with 4others and Feed My Starving Children. through our MobilePack event on May 10-11, 2013. Visit www.food4others.org to volunteer, partner in raising funds, or give meals.
