It Takes A Village – Feed My Starving Children
On April 20-22, the Haddonfield Council of Churches will host a food-packing event at the Cherry Hill National Guard Armory. In 6 two-hour shifts, 2,000 volunteers of all ages will pack, by hand, a combination of soy, rice, dehydrated vegetables, vitamins and minerals to be sent to children in schools, orphanages, and remote villages in developing nations who are suffering from starvation and malnutrition.
Feed My Starving Children is a faith-based 501(c)(3) company that has received a 4-star rating from Charity Navigator for 13 consecutive years.
92% of every dollar donated to FMSC goes to the food program. 99.96% of all food shipped has reached its intended recipients. Since 2013, our community has packed over 1,000,000 meals-enough to feed 2,918 children every day for a year.
For additional information contact Gerry Rice. Opportunities exist for business and corporate sponsorships.
All donations should be credited to our specific event (1804-026MI).
