Every day, 6,200 children around the world die from starvation...
Imagine how 1 million meals—and our working together—can help turn hunger into hope!
Our goal? To pack 1 million meals and to raise $220,000 to fund them. Come make a difference with us!
Thank you, volunteers, for helping us reach our goal... and then some! You packed 1,010,880 meals, which is equivalent to feeding 2,769 kids for a whole year!
That's a huge accomplishment, but just one part of our mission together...
There's still opportunity to help fund the meals and make a difference in that way, too. Please make a donation today!
At 22 cents a meal—approximately $50 per volunteer—we need to raise $220,000 to cover the cost of the meals we pack! As of Feb. 5, we have raised $204,602 toward that goal.
This means your donation goes a long way among the world’s hungriest children. For example...

Feed My Starving Children (FMSC) is a Christian nonprofit hunger relief organization founded in 1987. Committed to "feeding God's starving children hungry in body and spirit," FMSC operates five permanent packing sites (Coon Rapids, Chanhassen, Eagan, Minn.; Aurora, Schaumburg, Ill.), as well as MobilePack events ... like Calvary's!
FMSC's MannaPack Rice meals provide the key nutrients a starving child needs to survive and thrive, and are distributed through various community settings: orphanages, schools, clinics, refugee camps and nutrition programs. Children in 70 countries receive FMSC food.
It's all possible through thousands of volunteers and donors! Volunteers pack 100 percent of the food, with each meal costing only 22 cents to produce. With 94 percent of total FMSC donations going directly to its feeding program, donations of all amounts go a long way in fighting hunger!
