Tomah Area MobilePack

Jul 12, 2013 - Jul 13, 2013

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.
