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 TM 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 .
