Feed My Starving Children ~ Mobilepack, January 20-21, 2019

(Feed My Starving Children (FMSC) founded in 1987, is a Christian non-profit that provides nutritionally complete meals specifically formulated for malnourished children.)

Why: We want to pack 100,000 meals for God’s children. FMSC is a Christian nonprofit that provides volunteer-packed, nutritious meals for starving people around the world. Today, 6,200 children die from starvation, daily.

Who: You and the Community of Salina & Surrounding Area. We hope to partner with you in this important service for God’s children in great need.

When: Sunday & Monday, January 20 & 21, 2019 – Martin Luther King weekend – Day of Service

Where: Trinity United Methodist Church, 901 E. Neal Ave., Salina, KS

How: We invite you to join us in packaging these meals. We need 500 volunteers $22,000 (22 cents a meal).


Moses was buried alive in an outhouse. An older man heard his faint cries and went down inside the outhouse to pull him out. Today, Moses is a healthy 4th grader and wants to be “President of Haiti” one day, thanks to the MannaPack meals!

Information Meetings

On January 17 & 18, 2016 KWU hosted a very successful Feed My Starving Children MobilePack, attracting over a thousand volunteers from around the community. The volunteers packed 186,624 meals. At one meal a day, these meals fed 511 children for a year, making a significant impact on fighting world hunger.

A Feed My Starving Children MobilePack is an amazing service project bringing together schools, churches, community organizations, and individuals aimed at reducing child poverty in developing countries around the world.

Our Salina Community has an opportunity to participate in another FMSC MobilePack

We are hosting several information sessions in May to discuss how you can participate in the next event, now scheduled for January 20-21, 2019. These meetings are open to all. Three different sessions will be offered. Each meeting should last no more than 30 minutes, and the same information will be provided at each of the three meetings, so feel free to choose the session that works best with your personal schedule.

Meeting dates/times:
1. May 7, 7:00 p.m.
2. May 9, 12:15 p.m.
3. May 22, 7:00 p.m.

Location: Trinity United Methodist Church, 901 E. Neal Ave., Salina, KS

Agenda for the meeting:

  • 15-20 minute presentation about the MobilePack
  • Sharing of previous experience with meal-packing events
  • Q & A about the January, 2019 event
  • Discussion of ways to donate or participate*

*If you are a member of a church or community organization, one idea might be to form teams

  1. Prayer team – we ask for everyone to pray for a success
  2. Promotion team – inform everyone you know including out of town family
  3. Fundraising team – decide on a fundraiser (Advent is a great time for this)
  4. Optional – Opportunity to order M&M tubes = a fundraiser(empty or full tubes)
