Join fellow alumni, parents, and friends for a volunteer outing with Feed My Starving Children. On the weekend before Thanksgiving the University of Chicago Club of the Twin Cities invites you to participate in a few hours of community service. All Ivy/TCAN groups are invited, whole families are welcome to sign up (minimum age is five years old), and you are welcome to invite friends to participate too.
FMSC's volunteer program offers groups of all kinds the opportunity to work together in a positive, team-focused environment. Founded in 1987, the organization is a Christian nonprofit that provides nutritionally complete meals for starving, malnourished, and hungry people in nearly 70 countries around the world. The prepackaged dry meals—costing less than a quarter each to make—are funded and assembled by donor-volunteers at seven permanent sites and MobilePack events around the United States. Alumni from the Twin Cities are invited to support this effort by assisting to package the food packs.
Around the world, partner nonprofits use MannaPack meals to fuel future generations and build a foundation for lasting improvement in impoverished communities. Each vitamin-packed, protein-rich meal addresses hunger in a specific stage and is accepted in all cultures. FMSC has maintained the highest four-star rating from Charity Navigator for eight consecutive years. For nearly ten years, FMSC has devoted more than 92 percent of total donations directly to feeding kids.
