Provide HOPE for 2021 by turning hunger into HOPE with your own two hands!At Feed My Starving you can turn hunger into hope with your own two hands. We have quite a few shifts with little to no one signed up to volunteer. When we don't have volunteers, we can't pack food! We are urgently calling for YOU to help us turn hunger into hope with YOUR own two hands. Together, we can change the world! As we re-open sites to volunteers amid the COVID-19 pandemic, we are planning some changes to our procedures. Before registering for a shift, please review the new safety measures here: https://www.fmsc.org/get-involved/volunteer Please watch the video here for a preview of what to expect: https://youtu.be/PQ0zdFruo0s Help us pack at these sessions: 9:00 - 11:00 am 12:00 pm - 2:00 pm 3:00 - 5:00 pm 6:00 - 8:00 pm Click here to sign up!!

You will...

  • Get a brief orientation with video, rules, and instructions
  • work together with other volunteers to be part of an assembly line process to label, pour ingredients, weigh, box, and palletize dry ingredients.
  • Conclude your packing shift to celebrate the number of boxes you packed as a large group and learn about what your next steps can look like

We will...

  • Promise you a good time working together with friends, family, and sometimes strangers
  • Empower you and your team to be world changers
  • Include everyone on your team. We have spots for people who can’t stand, those who want to move and be active, and anyone who is looking for a fun place to volunteer!

About Feed My Starving Children

Location:

401 93rd Ave NW, Coon Rapids, MN 55433, US

Mission Statement

Feeding God's starving children hungry in body and spirit.

Description

Christian non-profit Feed My Starving Children (FMSC) has tackled world hunger since 1987 by sending volunteer-packed, nutritious meals to 70 countries. These meals are specifically designed to reverse and prevent malnutrition and are used in schools, orphanages, clinics and feeding programs to break the cycle of poverty. In 2014, FMSC welcomed nearly 900,000 volunteers to pack more than 229 million meals through its permanent sites and nationwide MobilePack program. The Minnesota-based charity spends 92% of total donations directly on feeding the hungry and has earned the highest 4-star rating from Charity Navigator for 10 consecutive years. Visit fmsc.org for more information.

During your packing session you will be participating in an assembly line process. With the help of volunteers, dry ingredients are poured into bags, the bags are weighed and sealed, then boxed and put onto pallets. If we have volunteers that are unable to stand for long periods of time, they are welcome to sit at tables and label bags. Your packing session includes a brief orientation and video followed by packing instructions. Your packing shift will conclude with a short closing. During that time you will learn how many meals you and your fellow volunteers have packed.
