About the Organization: Feed My Starving Children is a Christian non-profit organization that coordinates the packaging and distribution of food to starving children in some of the most food-insecure places in the world. The organization hosts packing events where volunteers put together MannaPacks, which are meals made up of dehydrated food specially formulated for malnourished individuals. The vitamins, minerals and other nutrients contained within a blend of rice, dehydrated vegetables and soy nuggets have helped those who have few other means of adequate nutrition to get back onto an adequate dietary track. Donations to the organization help to pay for the meals, which are then shipped to Feed My Starving Children's partners around the world who distribute them to schools, orphanages, refugee camps, and hunger relief centers. Each pack of food costs less than a quarter and will feed a child for a whole day.
DPC Engagement: DPC has particiapted in the Feed My Starving Children packing event in Doylestown for several years now. This all-church volunteer opportunity is a great way for members of all ages to get involved. With a group of over 200 volunteers in 2018, we were able to pack 75,000 meals!
