My name is Mike Jensen, a member of the Oro Valley Church of the Nazarene (OVCN), and we are hosting an exciting event at the OVCN from Feb. 3 to 8, through the national nonprofit organization, Feed My Starving Children (FMSC). FMSC meals are produced by volunteers in Arizona, Illinois, Minnesota, Texas, and other locations throughout the U.S. through MobilePack events. By volunteering at FMSC, you’ll get the chance to improve the lives of hundreds of kids in just over two hours per packing shift. You’ll experience what it’s like to make a tangible difference today.
FMSC partners with community groups, businesses, schools, and churches to pack nutritious meals for shipment to malnourished children around the world.
Last year, the OVCN packed half a million MobilePacks, and we are raising the bar this year to double this incredible achievement. Our goal is to pack one million MobilePack meals that will be sent to needy children around the world to help reduce the 6,200 children who die of hunger each day. FMSC also recently sent 400,000 meals to the hurricane victims in the Bahamas. We plan to have 20 food packing sessions during these six days with each session lasting two hours and 15 minutes. We estimate approximately 5,000 volunteers are needed to accomplish this ambitious goal.
FMSC offers volunteers a one-of-a-kind experience. You’ll hand-pack rice, soy, dried vegetables, and a nutritionally complete blend of vitamins and minerals into bags which are then sealed, boxed, placed on pallets, and shipped to our incredible partners working hard to reach the neediest children around the world.
