Feed My Starving Children Service Project
GREAT SERVICE PROJECT FOR THE FAMILY!!! (with a huge impact around the world!!)
Many of you have asked me if the Feed My Starving Children mobile pack is coming back to our area this year - because your family packed meals with us in the past and you want to do it again. It is coming back!! This year, we will again be packing 500,000 meals for starving children in the world. No….that isn’t a typo…you read correctly….that is a HALF MILLION MEALS! The mobile pack will be held October 24-26 at William Jessup University in Rocklin. There are seven two-hour shifts to choose from.
I AM STILL IN NEED OF 800+ VOLUNTEERS (and very thankful that over 2,200 people have already signed up!)
This is an excellent service project for the family! (including kids, ages 5 and up, as long as they can focus on an assembly line for almost two hours) In the past three years that the mobile pack has been held here in this area, hundreds of homeschoolers have been instrumental in getting these meals packed and I have heard testimonials that it has been a life-changing experience for many of you. Thank you!!! You inspire me!!! More information can be found at the website at http://www.sacfmscmobilepack.org/ (see “Questions and Answers” for most frequently asked questions, especially about adult-to-child ratios)
Registration is now open on-line so you can sign up here – please pass this along to your family and friends as well:
To pack meals:
Here is a brief video about how a mobile pack works – in case you’ve never been to one of these before.
If you sign up to pack meals with us, you will receive an e-mail (originating from Alexia Hall) about a week before the event. It will have important information about what to wear, what time to arrive, parking, etc. Watch for it (might possibly go to your spam folder) and please pass it along to everyone in your family/group.
Donations are gladly accepted to help us cover the cost of the meals but it is not required so please do not let that stop you from serving with us!!!
Don’t hesitate to contact me if you have questions! firstname.lastname@example.org or 916-782-4411
Hope to see you at the mobile pack!
