Join with family and friends at Feed My Starving Children to feed kids this holiday season

Hunger is on the rise again, according to a recent report by the UN. Conflict, often intensified by drought, extreme weather and natural disasters, is to blame. This holiday season, Chicago-area volunteers can provide hope and nourishment to children in need around the world by participating in special meal-packing sessions at Feed My Starving Children facilities in Aurora, Libertyville and Schaumburg.

 

At “fully-invested” holiday packing sessions held on Thanksgiving, the second and third Sundays before Christmas and the Saturday before Christmas, volunteers hand-assemble nourishing FMSC MannaPack™ meals that are distributed to schools, clinics, orphanages and feeding programs in 70 countries.

 

The $50 donation per volunteer (or $150 per household) required for the holiday packing sessions covers the cost of one box of 216 MannaPack meals, which feeds a child for seven months.

 

Normally, FMSC does not require a donation, but several times a year FMSC gives volunteers the chance to become fully invested by packing meals and investing financially in them as well. Those unable to invest financially are invited to attend one of FMSC’s regular packing sessions.

 

These special “Fully Invested” sessions will be offered at Feed My Starving Children meal-packing sites in Aurora, Libertyville and Schaumburg on:

 

    • Thursday, November 22 (Thanksgiving): 9 a.m.-10:30 a.m. and 11 a.m. - 12:30 p.m.
    • Sunday, December 9: 1-3 p.m.
    • Sunday, December 16: 1-3 p.m.
    • Monday, December 24: 9-10:30 a.m. and 11 a.m.-12:30 p.m. 

Reserve spots at fmsc.org/fully-invested. There is room for 140 volunteers at the Libertyville site, 140 at the Aurora site and 120 at the Schaumburg site for each of the six shifts.
