Feed My Starving Children
September 19, 2011

My family and I volunteer at the Schaumburg, IL facility for FMSC every other Saturday (unless we forget to sign up 8 months or so ahead of time!). It's great to have an organization that involves children in helping other children... My kids have learned that not everyone is as fortunate as we are here in the U.S., and that is a gift! Their mission is clear, their operations are run like a tight ship, and they are helping so many children around the world get the nutrition they need! God bless Mark Crea and all the other employees at FMSC who make feeding starving children their life's work!

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

Schaumburg, IL

Ways to make it better...

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Maybe make the packing portion of the time a little longer or allow those who have seen the videos (many times!) continue to pack while the "newbies" watch the videos. Otherwise, I wouldn't change a thing! ( :
