Church volunteers produce 100,000 life-saving meals
Hundreds of Church of the Saviour volunteers and community members will work to feed thousands of starving children in the developing world. Through a partnership between the church (at 2537 Lee Road in Cleveland Heights) and Minneapolis-based Feed My Starving Children (FMSC), volunteers will prepare 100,000 potentially life-saving meals at an FMSC MobilePack event on Saturday, May 18, in the church’s Great Hall
Feed My Starving Children is a non-profit Christian organization committed to feeding starving children. The approach is simple: children and adults pack meals designed specifically for starving children, and FMSC ships the meals to nearly 70 countries around the world. Each meal costs only 22 cents to produce. For more information, visit fmsc.org.
MobilePack events enable children and adults across the United States to pack FMSC’s MannaPack meals. Churches, businesses, community groups and schools in more than 30 states have hosted these 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.
Heights-area community members can support this MobilePack by making a donation or by volunteering to package food at the event. Donations may be given at any time, and volunteer registration is currently open. To learn more, donate or volunteer, visit www.chsaviour.org.
