Food 4others

According to the World Food Program, "hunger is the world's biggest solvable problem." Malnutrition is not having enough nourishing food, with adequate amounts of protein, vitamins, minerals and calories to support physical and mental growth and development. Children who survive early childhood malnutrition suffer irreversible harm -- including poor physical growth, compromised immune function, and impaired cognitive ability. 

Food is the foundation for all other progress. To a starving child, hope can only begin once a reliable source of nutritious food has been established. Food assistance is a vital component in the process of transitioning individuals, families and communities out of chronic hunger and poverty and into self-sufficiency.

Food 4others MobilePack

The Food 4others MobilePack is an annual event involving local volunteers in hand-packing nutritious meals for severely malnourished children around the world. These meals are shipped to partners in over 70 countries and distributed by orphanages, clinics, schools, and community feeding programs.

In assembly-line fashion, volunteers pour, weigh, seal, and pack as many meals as they can during their 2-hour packing session. It’s a fun, fast-paced atmosphere while the packing process is simple enough for kids as young as five to volunteer.

When: May 18-19, 2019

Where: San Jose Elks Lodge

About the Food

Malnutrition is devastating to a child. It causes brain damage, tooth decay, stunted growth, confusion, anemia, bone loss, vision and digestion troubles, and eventually death. Through our partnership with Feed My Starving Children (FMSC), we can provide nutritious meals designed to give a child the nutrients needed to battle malnutrition and its effects. 

FMSC has developed meals that are easy and safe to transport, simple to make with only boiling water, and culturally acceptable worldwide. Each meal contains:

  • Rice, the most widely accepted grain around the world
  • Extruded soy nuggets, providing maximum protein at lowest cost
  • 20 vitamins and minerals with a vegetarian flavoring
  • Dehydrated vegetables for flavor and nutrition

These meals contain all of the nutrients a malnourished child needs not only to survive but to thrive. And the best part? Each meal costs only 24 cents to produce! 

Provide meals today! 100% of the funds we receive will go directly to providing meals to starving children. 

Give Meals

It takes only 24 cents to provide a nutritious meal! 100% of all donations received will go directly to giving meals to hungry children through our Food 4others MobilePack. So your gift will go a long way in the fight against world hunger.
