What to do with the kids as the hot summer continues on? Show them how good it feels to help hungry kids.
Kids as young as 5 can volunteer with their families to pack nutritious meals at Feed My Starving Children, a hunger relief nonprofit organization with a meal-packing site in Mesa, 1345 S. Alma School Rd.
In two-hour meal packing shifts at FMSC, students and their families learn about world hunger and use their own hands to pack nutritious, culturally-acceptable MannaPack meals. At the end of a lively, assembly line-style packing session, volunteers celebrate the grand total of meals packed and children impacted.
Last year, 1.2 million volunteers packed 333 million meals, which were shipped to nearly 70 nations, where they become fuel for community development in schools, orphanages, clinics and feeding programs.
