Meals for Haiti
Our oldest daughter and I joined other girl scouts and mothers to help pack meals destined specifically this month for Haiti. Each plastic bag holds 6 meals consisting of rice, soy protein, dehydrated vegetables and 20 vitamins & minerals with a powered vegetarian chicken flavoring. This "Feed My Starving Children" packing site in Eagan is one of four sites located in Minnesota and Illinois. Founded in 1987, "FMSC" is a non-profit Christian organization committed to "Feeding God's Starving Children Hungry in Body and Spirit." The assembled volunteers packed 31 boxes containing 6,696 meals in 90 minutes, enough to feed 18 children for one year. Meals are sent to over 60 countries and in 2010 they hope to pack and ship over 100 million meals!
