Volunteers Needed for Food Packing Event

Feed My Starving Children (FMSC) is a Christian organization founded in 1987. Through MobilePack events, FMSC is able to partner with local community organizations to send healthy, safe meals to malnourished children around the world.  Thanks to volunteers packing and covering the expense of the meals, each meal costs less than 25 cents to produce.  Since 1987, FMSC has distributed more than 2 billion meals in nearly 70 countries.

The 7th Lancaster County Feed My Starving Children MobilePack will take place Friday-Sunday, March 25-27, 2022, at Willow Street Mennonite Church, 399 E. Penn Grant Road, Willow Street, PA 17564. 1,250 volunteers will provide 300,000 meals to help alleviate world hunger!  To date, our meals have gone to Somalia, Haiti, Belize, Dominican Republic, Malawi and Uganda. Working together over the last 6 years, more than 6,500 volunteers from our community have come together to send more than 1.3 million meals to those most in need around the world!  

If you are age 5-205, WE NEED YOU!!!!!

How does it work? 1,250 volunteers work during 2 hour shifts to provide 300,000 meals in 3 days.  The volunteers come from churches, businesses, friends, relatives, co-workers and anyone else who would like to participate.  It is an awesome opportunity for families and friends to volunteer and spend time together for a great cause!

COVID 19 Precautions: Masks are not required but may be worn if desired. Hand-washing stations will be implemented this year.  Increased disinfecting practices between shifts per COVID-19 protocols will be in place. All volunteers need to preregister online.

Can anyone do it? For safety and efficiency, required student-to-adult ratios are put in place:

K-2nd grade   1 student to 1 adult

3rd-6th grade   3 students to 1 adult

7th-9th grade   4 students to 1 adult

10th-12th grade  5 students  to 1 adult

Sit down jobs are available as needed.

Does it cost to participate? Every individual who signs up for a packing shift is encouraged to make a personal goal of contributing a minimum of $52.  At the price of less than 25 cents a meal, this covers the cost of 1 box of packed meals (216 meals) which is the average amount a single volunteer packs in a 2 hour period.  Whether a person can contribute 25 cents or $250, we welcome you to participate in the MobilePack event.

For the second year! Food Collection for the Lanc. Co. Council of Churches Food Hub: Unfortunately, food insecurity is a local challenge as a well as a global one for many.  As a result, in addition to financial donations to cover the cost of the FMSC meals, we are inviting everyone to bring along a non-perishable food item that will be donated to the Lanc. Co. Council of Churches Food Hub that is located in Lancaster city.  Items requested include:

Peanut butter (1 lb. containers),  Canned meats- salmon, chicken or tuna, Rice or brown rice (1 lb. bags), Canned potatoes, Whole grain pasta or Mac & Cheese (12 oz boxes) and Pouch meals (such as Hamburger Helper)

Anyone from Lancaster County may receive food from this location.
