Feed My Starving Children is an awesome way to give back, but instead of giving back to the community, you are helping people throughout the world. It began in 1987 and is now providing meals to hungry people in 70 countries.
Volunteers sign up to pack the 22 cent, dried, vitamin-fortified meals for 2 hour shifts. Children as young as 5 years old can join their parents. They have different ratios per the age of the children.
- Grades K-2 is a one to one ratio.
- Children in grades 3-6 require a3 to 1 ratio.
- Junior high kids are required to have 4 to 1.
- Grades 10-12 have a ration of 5 to 1.
While there is a maximum number of volunteers per session, you don’t have to be a part of a group to register to participate. On average a volunteer will pack one entire box per shift which equals 216 meals worth $50. Feed My Starving Children chooses to use volunteers instead of machines because their mission is dedicated not only to feeding starving kids, but feeding starving spirits.
If you want to make a tangible difference in this world. If you want to have one of best date nights with your children you could possibly have, contact Feed My Starving Children. I promise you won’t regret it.
