Here’s our latest FMSC meal shipping report. As we begin the summer, we still need volunteers to pack the meals we’ve promised to our partners around the world. Sign up now: fmsc.org/volunteer
Here’s our partner Food for the Poor distributing meals in Guatemala:

There are thousands of causes a corporation can support these days. So, when a company raises money and awareness for Feed My Starving Children not one but four years in a row, it’s a very special partnership indeed.
That’s what FMSC has with D.W. Morgan, a shipping and logistics company based in Pleasanton, Calif. Given the firm does business in 170 countries, perhaps it’s no surprise these folks care so much about children around the world.
In March 2013, for the fourth straight year, D.W. Morgan sponsored “Morgan Delivers for Starving Kids.” The company contributed six MannaPack™ meals ($1.32) for every shipment delivered within its supply chain that month. They also asked for donations from customers and the community, using social media and a dynamic campaign microsite. (Check out www.MorganDelivers.com—and note the graphic comparing U.S. living standards with the world’s poorest nations.)
By the end of March, D.W. Morgan raised more than $11,000 for Feed My Starving Children—enough for 53,000 meals to feed 144 children for a full year! It was the biggest year yet since the annual campaign started in 2010. Altogether, “Morgan Delivers for Starving Kids” has raised nearly 200,000 meals—and the CEO and founder says his company has just begun.
“For the fourth year in a row, our partnership with FMSC allows us to get meals into the hands of the hungriest children around the world,” says David W. Morgan, CEO and founder of D.W. Morgan Company. “Next year, our goal is to deliver even more.”
On behalf of the children we serve, thank you, D.W. Morgan! We’re so grateful for your generosity to the world’s neediest kids. As you move commerce from Point A to Point B, thank you for stopping to notice the need—and for doing something about it.
Every year, thousands of volunteers from Target, UPS, Bank of America, Best Buy, Wells Fargo, and other organizations pack meals at FMSC. Many companies also decide to host their own FMSC MobilePack event.
