This FMSC MobilePack event will take place November 23, 2013 at the North Dakota State Fair Center in Minot, ND.

This event was first brought to North Dakota in 2010 and was an overwhelming success. 300,000 food packages were created and 1,600 volunteers donated their time to assist. In 2013, FMSC committee members plan to reach even higher with a goal of 500,000 food packages to be created.

The FMSC Committee is encouraging churches, organizations and individuals in Central & Western North Dakota to support this MobilePack event by making a donation and volunteering to package food. To learn more, make a donation or register a team, visit www.fundraising.fmsc.org/Minot.

Feed My Starving Children is a non-profit  organization committed to feeding starving, hungrychildren. The approach is simple: children and adults hand pack meals designed specifically for starving children, and FMSC ships the meals to nearly 70 countries around the world. Each meal costs only $.22 to produce. Churches, businesses, community groups, and schools in more than 30 states have hosted these food-packing events as a way to foster teamwork and unity, while making a real difference in the problem of hunger.
