Feed the Need MobilePack 2020


The 2020 Feed My Starving Children (Naperville) MobilePack will take place at North Central College on Saturday and Sunday, February 15 and 16. 

Since 2013, it has been a Grace mission to join with church partners, organizations and individuals to pack hundreds of thousands, and recently millions, of meals to feed starving children throughout the world. Our first MobilePacks were hosted by Good Shepherd Lutheran Church, and we soon outgrew the needed space and were able to move the event to North Central College Residential/Recreation Center. MobilePacks differ from FMSC packing sites: MobilePacks allow space for more volunteers and supplies, making it possible for 5,000 volunteers to pack 1.2 million meals in only one weekend. 

MobilePacks are self-funded, meaning that sponsors and participates raise and donate all the monies required to fund costs. Remember the Noisy Offering the Children’s Choirs held in November? They were raising money to help fund the meals they will pack this year, and they will comprise at least 50% of the 100 volunteers Grace has committed to sending. This is not just for kids—adults are welcome, too. If you have participated in any way with FMSC, you know how important, rewarding and fun it is. 

If you have not previously participated, please join us to pack, label bags, greet or assist with any of many tasks that support keeping children alive and hopeful for a future. 

Our packing times are on Saturday, February 15, from 3:30 p.m. - 5:30 p.m. and on Sunday, February 16, from 4 p.m. - 6 p.m. Our Children’s Choirs and families will pack on Saturday, February 15, at noon.
