WHAT IS THE MILLION MEALS EVENT?
Every year, millions of children die from preventable causes such as pneumonia, diarrhea, malaria, and undernutrition. Hunger is still causing nearly half of deaths in children under five years old. From this data, it is estimated at least 6,200 children die each day from causes related to undernutrition. This is heartbreaking… and this is where we can Show Them His Love.
NorthRidge is partnering with Feed My Starving Children to hand-pack 1,000,000 meals for starving children in 3 days!
WHO IS FEED MY STARVING CHILDREN?
Feed My Starving Children is a non-proﬁt Christian organization committed to feeding God’s starving children. The approach is simple: children and adults hand-pack meals formulated specially for starving children. These pre-packaged meals go to nearly 111 countries around the world. Last year, FMSC provided 426 million meals to communities in need.
The MannaPack consists of rice, soy protein, dehydrated vegetables, 20 vitamins/minerals, and vegetarian chicken ﬂavoring. Each meal provides the key nutrients a starving child needs to survive and thrive.
These meals are distributed through orphanages, clinics, schools, and relief centers.
Anyone age five or older is welcome! You do not need to be a member or attendee of NorthRidge Church to participate. Invite a friend, neighbor, or co-worker to support this outreach with you. Make it a family event.
The following student-to-adult ratios need to be met:
Please note: No childcare is provided.
Register to pack meals for a 2-hour shift on either February 29, March 1, or March 2.
Sign up as an individual, family (children 5yrs and above can participate), or group. Invite your friends, neighbors, and co-workers to join the fun!
“Feed My Starving Children is blessed to partner with NorthRidge Church. The world has gotten so much hungrier in the last few years. This MobilePack event is going to produce 1,003,104 meals for children living in conditions beyond our imaginations. Each one of those meals is a victory over hunger. A MobilePack as big as this one allows us to say, “Yes! Dinner is ready!” to so many more kids. This is going to be awesome!” – Feed My Starving Children
This event will start at 6:00p on Thu, February 29, and run through 5:00p Sat, March 2.
