The Feed My Starving Children MobilePack™ gives local volunteers a hands-on opportunity to better understand the global hunger crisis and make a difference in the lives of children worldwide. Feed My Starving Children is a highly-rated non-profit organization. In fact, more than 90% of all donations go directly toward packing and distribution of these meals.
Feed the NeedTM 2019 promises to be bigger and better than ever! With 6,000 volunteers expected from Naperville and surrounding areas, including many from the Fox Valley, Feed The Need 2019 is partnering with 2 local food depositories: Loaves & Fishes in Naperville, and Northern Illinois Food Bank (NIFB) in Geneva, which serves 13 counties in northern Illinois.
Feed the Need's purpose is to pack (assembly line fashion) 1.2 MILLION MEALS in six 90-minute packing shifts that will save the lives of starving children all around the world, but we must also care for our own communities. In fact, last year, Feed the Need collected over 2 TONS of food for local friends and neighbors. This year, with your help, we're hoping to collect even more!
IT'S EASY: When you come to Feed the Need at the North Central College Res/Rec Center in Naperville on Saturday or Sunday, February 16-17, simply bring one or more non-perishable food item with you and place it/them in one of the collection bins near at the registration entrance - they'll be easy to find. That's it!
The food donations you make and the time you invest in packing will serve both starving children and our local communities.
Here, near and far - working together to "turn hunger into hope", Feed the Need! will make a BIG difference!
