Feed My Starving Children - All-FVCC Service Project

77 folks from FVCC joined in service today at Feed My Starving Children in Aurora. It was a great experience. If you have never been, it is truly an excellent place to serve. For about an hour, you work together as a team to package up meals to go overseas and feeds folks who are starving.

Each meal pouch contains enough chicken, freeze-dried veggies, soy and rice for six folks. When mixed with heated water, it provides enough nutrition for the day. And it takes, literally, about 60 seconds to put together a meal pouch.

Then they are sealed and placed in boxes, weighted and prepared for shipment.

The organization is non-profit and 95% of their work is done by volunteers (like FVCC). They are extremely professional. They know what you need to do and how to do it. It's a great experience.

Finally, the group gathered together in their warehouse and prayed over the meals.

Altogether, FVCC packed 96 boxes, with 20,736 meals... which is enough to feed 57 kids for a whole year. And we worked about 70 minutes!!! That's awesome!!!

Way to go FVCC!!! and FMSC!!!
