Tomah Area MobilePack, Friday, July 12th & Saturday, July 13th @ Tomah Fairgrounds
The 2nd Tomah Area MobilePack will take place on Friday, July 12 and Saturday, July 13 for Feed My Starving Children. Feed My Starving Children is a Christian nonprofit hunger relief organization, founded in 1987. The event will be held at the fairgrounds. Adults and children are invited to work two-hour shifts packing life-saving meals that get sent to families around the world. Each meal costs only 22¢ to produce. To learn more about Feed My Starving Children, visit www.fmsc.org.
Volunteer shifts are: July 12, 5-7pm & 7:30-9:30pm and July 13, 9-11am, 11:30am-1:30pm & 2-4pm.
Our goal is to have 750 volunteers. These volunteers will work in groups of 15 per packaging cell. An average cell produces 4,000 meals per 2-hour packaging session. Volunteers measure ingredients, pack food and prepare the boxes for shipment. The food is distributed in various community settings: orphanges, schools, clinics, refugee camps and nutrition programs in more than 62 countries.
The MannaPack Rice meal costs 22¢ per meal. This year's mobile pack needs to package 150,000 meals for a total of $33,000.
