Event Series Event Series: Feed My Starving Children MobilePack

Feed My Starving Children MobilePack

April 5 @ 9:00 am - 8:30 pm

Feed My Starving Children (FMSC) is a Christian organization founded in 1987. Through MobilePack events, FMSC is able to partner with local community organizations to send healthy, safe meals to malnourished children around the world. Thanks to volunteers packing and covering the expense of the meals, each meal costs only 29 cents to produce. Since 1987, FMSC has distributed more than 2 billion meals in nearly 70 countries.

The 9th Lancaster County Feed My Starving Children MobilePack will take place Friday-Sunday, April 5-7, 2024 at Willow Street Mennonite Church, Willow Street, PA. 1,500 volunteers will pack 300,000 meals to help alleviate world hunger! To date, our meals have gone to Somalia, Haiti, Belize, Dominican Republic, Malawi, Uganda, Jamaica and Poland. Working together over the last 8 events, more than 8,700 volunteers from our community have come together to send more than 2 million meals to those most in need around the world!

If you are age 5-105, WE NEED YOU!!!!!

How does it work? 1,500 volunteers work during 2 hour shifts to pack 300,000 meals in 3 days. The volunteers come from churches, schools, businesses, friends, relatives, co-workers and anyone else who would like to participate. It is an awesome opportunity for families and friends to volunteer and spend time together for a great cause!

Can anyone do it? For safety and efficiency, required student-to-adult ratios are put in place:

K-2nd grade 1 student to 1 adult
3rd-6th grade 3 students to 1 adult
7th-9th grade 4 students to 1 adult
10th-12th grade 5 students to 1 adult

Sit down jobs are available as needed.
