Next week thousands of volunteers will work at Nappanee Missionary Church to feed millions of starving children in the developing world. Through a partnership between the church and Feed My Starving Children, volunteers will prepare 2,300,000 life-saving meals at an FMSC MobilePack event Tuesday-Saturday, Nov. 4-8, at Nappanee Missionary Church, 70417 SR 19 North, Nappanee.
This is the fifth year in a row Nappanee Missionary Church will host an FMSC MobilePack event. In 2010 the church hosted an event to pack 300,000 meals. In 2011 it hosted an event to pack 1,200,000 meals. In 2012 Nappanee Missionary Church hosted a 2-million-meal event which produced more than 2.1 million meals. Last year, the event produced more than 2.2 million meals.
The upcoming event requires the church to fill 7,600 volunteer positions to prepare the meals and many more volunteers to coordinate and manage the event.
Nappanee Missionary Church is located at 70417 SR 19 North, Nappanee. For more information on Nappanee Missionary Church, go to www.nmconline.net.
Feed My Starving Children is a non-profit Christian organization committed to feeding God’s starving children hungry in body and spirit. The approach is simple: children and adults hand pack meals designed specifically for starving children, and FMSC ships the meals to nearly 70 countries around the world. Each meal costs only 22¢ to produce. For more information, visit fmsc.org.
MobilePack events enable children and adults across the United States to pack FMSC’s life-giving MannaPack meals. Churches, businesses, community groups, and schools in more than 30 states have hosted these food-packing events as a way to foster teamwork and unity while making a real difference in the problem of hunger. FMSC provides guidance and logistics. Local donors and volunteers provide funds and labor to produce the meals.
