In November 2013, Typhoon Haiyan hit the Philippines causing excessive damage and killing thousands. Feed My Starving Children was positioned to respond. Our existing partnerships in the Philippines meant millions of meals were ready to be distributed in response, and millions more could be shipped with confidence they would be used well.
The Philippines is still rebuilding today. Our partner International Care Ministries (ICM) is one of FMSC’s partners making a huge impact, especially in the remote islands hit by the Typhoon. Watch this new video to see how FMSC’s meals help ICM rebuild life with families in the Philippines.

2014 is almost over. In a lot of ways, it has been a hard year. Hope is needed now more than ever.
And hope is strong! By the end of next year, if we’ve all poured out more love, everyone wins. That’s why we think you should pack meals on New Year’s Eve with FMSC. It’s a chance to say, “Love in action is important to me! This is what I want my life to look like in 2015.”

Let’s fill 2015 with more love, more generosity, and more hope.
2nd Guy Golf is a men’s & women’s golf apparel & accessory brand founded by former MLB pitcher Russ Ortiz. The company gives 100% of its net profit to charitable organizations. Their mission and heart: helping people.
Since November of last year, 2nd Guy Golf has donated all the proceeds from their men’s apparel line to Feed My Starving Children. The purchase of one of men’s polo provides 45 meals to a child. The employees of 2nd Guy Golf also volunteer at our Tempe, Arizona packing site.
“From the beginning, the prospect of working with FMSC and being able to literally use our hands to make a difference was something really exciting,” Russ said. “Now that we’ve been involved with them and met the people driving their initiative, it’s humbling and a privilege to know that we have the opportunity to work along side them and contribute to their cause of ending hunger.”
Ending hunger takes teamwork. We’re thankful for 2nd Guy Golf!

Five years ago, Gerald and his younger sister Deyling weren’t expected to live. Chronic malnutrition and severe anemia hindered Gerald’s growth. His sister wasn’t doing well, either.
The family lives in the northern Nicaraguan town of Las Sabanas, where it is a daily struggle to earn a living and find food—most are lucky if they eat one meal a day. Nearly 50% of the children in this area don’t get enough to eat, are chronically malnourished, and as a result, their growth is stunted.
“They were so weak they couldn’t walk without help,” Gerald and Deyling’s mother said. “They could hardly stand.” The future looked bleak for these precious children.
That’s when our partner Fabretto stepped in to help. The family began receiving health and nutritional support. Gerald and his sister were immediately enrolled in Fabretto’s education and lunch programs, where FMSC MannaPack Rice is served daily. With a consistent source of nutrition, their starved and sickly bodies slowly began to heal.
“Without these programs my children wouldn’t be alive,” their mother said.
Today, 10-year-old Gerald and 7-year-old Deyling are THRIVING. Their smiles light up a room. Gerald is succeeding in school and has become one of the most active students in his class.
His teacher noted his progression, “Gerald used to be very quiet, he would never participate. Now he is always the first to raise his hand.” His transformation is remarkable.
School meals save lives. Programs like Fabretto’s are offered by hundreds of FMSC’s partners all around the world, which means more children are given the chance to grow into all that God has made them to be.
Thanks to YOU, children just like Gerald and Deyling now have the brightest futures full of HOPE.
