What kind of food will you be packing?
Feed My Starving Children (FMSC) has worked to develop a food mixture that would be easy and safe to transport, simple to make with only boiling water, and culturally acceptable worldwide.
With the input of scientists from major food companies in the Twin Cities area—including Cargill and General Mills—FMSC developed MannaPackTM-Rice, a formula consisting of these ingredients:
- Rice, the most widely accepted grain around the world.
- Extruded soy nuggets, providing maximum protein at lowest cost.
- Vitamins, minerals, and a vegetarian chicken flavoring to give growing children the critical nutritional elements they need.
- Dehydrated vegetables for flavor and nutrition.
Packaged in small pouches, each provides six highly nutritious meals. While the formula was designed to save the lives of severely malnourished and starving children, the ingredients also improve the health, growth, and physical well-being of children who are no longer in immediate danger of starvation.
A single bag of food provides meals for six children.
Our goal is to pack up to 1,000,000 meals.
2017 Facts & Figures:
- Over 5,000 volunteers packed both Friday and Saturday (a total of 14 packing hours).
- Together, we packed 1,003,107 meals.
- Our boxes of food were distributed before the end of March, 2017 and went to the Dominican Republic, Nicaragua and Haiti.
- 2,748 children are being fed for a full year!
