Feed My Starving Children celebrated St. Patrick’s Volunteers on Friday May 26th 2017. At the end of the 6 PM shift a certificate was presented to St. Patrick Catholic Church: Thank you for packing 649,512 meals. This will help feed 1,179 kids for an entire year!
Feed My Starving Children (FMSC) is a non-profit Christian organization committed to feeding God’s children hungry in body and spirit. Children and adults hand-pack meals that are specifically formulated for malnourished children. The meals are then shipped to nearly 70 countries worldwide.
In March 2010, in recognition of this unique opportunity to provide a practical and meaningful service project to the members of our parish, the Circles of Claddagh began organizing volunteers to pack meals once a month at FMSC in Coon Rapids. This ministry unites St. Patrick volunteers with other individuals and community groups that desire to respond to Christ’s call to feed the hungry.
Volunteers for this ministry are needed on the last Friday of each month. Serve from 9:30 -11:30 AM and/or 6:00 – 7:30 PM. (In November & December the Noon – 2:00 PM shift usually replaces the 6 PM reservation.) Read about Frequently Asked Questions for volunteer guidelines and restrictions. Due to health concerns, FMSC requests that volunteers stay home when ill.
