Join us on Saturday, April 29 to pack food at Feed My Starving Children in Chanhassen. This is an urgent time for FMSC – from a recent WCCO-TV report:
Stephen O’Brien, the United Nations’ emergency relief coordinator, says 20 million people in four countries across Africa and the Middle East are at risk of starvation and famine.O’Brien called it the largest humanitarian crisis since 1945, the year the U.N. was formed. Feed My Starving Children is just one of many organizations answering the call to offer aid, sending meals to Somalia and other countries in need. “This is different because due to conflict, drought and many other reasons, there’s a great need with food insecurity in that region,” said Alli Schwartz, communications manager for FMSC. In an average year, FMSC will contribute around a million meals to the hungry. The current humanitarian crisis has increased the need tenfold. “We need 10 million additional meals, above and beyond what we planned for,” Schwartz said.
We’ll be packing food from 11:30 am – 1:30 am. Bus transportation will be available – the bus will leave at 10:45 am from SpringHouse. Our FMSC Join # is 1080203 – register here.
