Grace Church ‘Feeds the Need’ Again in 2017

40.medium

February 18 and 19 will mark the fifth year that Grace Church’s partnership with faith-based and secular communities to help Feed My Starving Children (FMSC) hand pack meals specifically formulated for malnourished children.

Every day, 6200 children die of starvation, but our hands-on participation in the MobilePack will turn hunger into hope. At a cost of only $80, FMSC is able to feed a starving child one nourishing meal every day for an entire year. Please prayerfully consider how you can use your God-given gifts to support this life-sustaining mission.

Rather than at the FMSC’s Aurora site, the MobilePack location will be North Central College campus, as it was last year. As meals are packed, they will be loaded in containers to be shipped to FMSC mission partners running orphanages, schools, clinics, church and community feeding programs in any of 70 countries worldwide.

Fundraising events are planned for the fall and winter, and donations marked “Feed My Starving Children” are welcome at any time. Registration for packing shifts will begin in January 2017. More information will follow in the weeks ahead.

FMSC is a Christian-based non-profit organization committed to feeding children starving in body and spirit. Of every dollar raised for the cause, 92 cents goes toward feeding children. For 11 consecutive years, Charity Navigator has awarded FMSC the highest rating of 4 stars. In 20-plus years, FMSC has provided one billion meals to keep children alive.
