In February, FMSC sent 91 shipments totaling 25,366,176 meals. Without your help, this would not have been possible! Please continue to volunteer and donate to help us feed even more kids in 2015.
Here’s a recent “thank you” for FMSC meals from Ghana:
More stories from FMSC:
Our Tempe, Arizona packing site will be moving to a bigger facility in Mesa this Spring. The move will allow us to accommodate 150,000 more volunteers and pack 35 million more meals each year!
“We are thrilled to bring FMSC to the city of Mesa. This is an incredible opportunity,” said FMSC Executive Director/CEO Mark Crea. “By moving to a larger site, more volunteers will be able to hand-pack even more life-saving meals. This means more desperately hungry children around the world will be fed and given the hope of a bright future that can only start with a full belly.”
Our move date will be announced soon. Be on the lookout for more details.
Thank you for your commitment to serve God’s kids hungry in body and spirit. We’re so excited to have you pack with us!
Pack meals at Feed My Starving Children during this Easter season. For these special sessions only, each volunteer is required to bring a $50 donation per person or $150 per household to cover the cost of one box of meals (the amount one person usually packs).

Feed My Starving Children meals have reached the hungry in eastern Ukraine. Our new distribution partner Mission Eurasia has received and distributed over 272,000 FMSC meals to refugees and families.
Please watch and share this new video!

“The food is going mostly to the elderly, disabled, and families with small children,” Mission Eurasia told FMSC. Here are some new pictures of the FMSC meal distribution.
Valery and Anna were living close to where the violence erupted in eastern Ukraine. Valery took his pregnant wife and two children to a different village. While a bit safer, their new home was still only five kilometers from some of the heaviest fighting. Valery was unable to find a job and grew more discouraged.
Mission Eurasia and their partners learned of the family. They visited the town with meals and care packages. Filled with gratitude, Anna immediately began cooking the FMSC meals for her children.
“Not only was this family filled with a delicious meal,” Mission Eurasia reports, “they were also reminded of God’s great love and provision, even in the midst of darkness around them.”
Sergey Rakhuba, President of Mission Eurasia, wrote in an update, “I hope you will be encouraged to know that your partnership is making an eternal difference in hundreds of thousands of lives in my struggling homeland. Thank you again for standing with us to impact Eurasia for Christ.”

Inspired by her mother, a frequent FMSC volunteer, Rachel Kuhn decided to raise funds to end hunger through a 500-mile pilgrimage across Northern Spain. She called it “Ending Hunger One Step at a Time: El Camino for the Children.”
In September 2014 Rachel began her 35-day trek across Spain. Her parents joined her for the final 75 miles. “Through the generosity of others, we raised nearly $2,000 to feed children,” said Rachel.
As she returned home and resumed her job as a yoga teacher, Rachel found herself wanting to do more. She had an idea: she could mobilize her yoga community to help end hunger! She set a goal to raise $8,030, enough to feed an entire village for a year.
The Feed the World Yoga Tour began to unfold. By Thanksgiving 2014 she had raised nearly $4,000 through yoga classes in the Chicagoland area and even one in Cambridge, United Kingdom!
Rachel’s motto: “Feed The Children. Feed Your Spirit” has begun to take hold in the yoga community. Other studios in Illinois and across the country have begun joining Rachel’s quest to end hunger. Her tour continues—she has currently raised more than $7,000 to feed precious children around the world!
We are so honored by Rachel’s hard work, passion and dedication to FMSC to get life-saving meals to children who need food desperately.
Community is an unstoppable force—together, we can all make a difference.
