Feed My Starving Children

Mission Statement

A Christian organization with headquarters in Minnesota along with sites and events around the country, FMSC’s mission is to “feed God’s starving children hungry in body and spirit”, by eliminating child malnutrition worldwide while providing meaningful service opportunities for volunteers in the United States.

Impact and Programs

Accomplishments This year, FMSC reached its 2 billionth meal. In the past fiscal year alone, FMSC produced 333,447,912 meals (surpassing its goal of 315 million meals) and sent a total of 322,815,000 meals. These meals were sent through 89 partner organizations in 60+ countries, reaching orphans, refugees, disaster victims, and many others living in poverty – preventing and oftentimes reversing the tragic effects of undernourishment. The majority were children. FMSC’s top recipient countries were Haiti (96.4 million meals), Nicaragua (34.2 million meals), the Philippines (24.4 million meals), El Salvador (20.1 million meals), and Guatemala (16.6 million meals). FMSC is proud to report that in its 31-year history, 99.8% of all meals shipped safely reached their intended destinations. Many of these meals sustained victims of natural disasters and conflict. Over the past two years, FMSC has sent nutritious emergency food assistance to the victims of various hurricanes in Haiti, Cuba, and other countries in Caribbean along with victims of famine in Somalia, Syrian refugees, and many others. FMSC also engaged 1,221,837 volunteers at its sites and MobilePack events.
Current Goals In fiscal year 2018-19, Feed My Starving Children aims to engage at least 1.4 million volunteers (volunteer visits) in hand packing 365 million meals. Although distribution schedules vary based on need, this will be enough to provide one serving of FMSC's nutritious meals to 1,000,000 children and/or vulnerable adults every day for an entire year.
Community or Constituency Served Mostly children, but also some vulnerable adults including the elderly and those with developmental disabilities, who are suffering from chronic hunger.
Geographic Area Served We engage volunteers across the Twin Cities at our Eagan, Chanhassan, and Coon Rapids sites. Our meals are served to those experiencing chronic hunger in 60+ countries around the world.
