DC14 Chicago’s Young Lions Help Feed My Starving Children
Feed My Starving Children (FMSC) is a nonprofit organization that believes food is the foundation for all other progress. To a starving child, hope can only truly begin once a reliable source of nutritious food has been established.
On August 7, 2021, DC14’s Young Lions organized a group of members and their families to attend one of FMSC’s food packing events. Feed My Starving Children has created three special MannaPack™ meals to combat malnutrition in areas without access to other consistent food options. Our members took on the roles of measuring out ingredients, assembling and sealing them into serving packets and helping to box and stack shipments in the warehouse for distribution. By the end of the event the team had packed 95 boxes, which amounts to 20,520 meals. That helps 56 individual children not have to worry where their next meal will come from for an entire year.
At the end of the event one of our very own brothers, Dan Roach’s, daughter was awarded a special sticker to recognize her for always being ready to help and for providing all her amazing dance moves to keep everyone’s energy up.
Wish you would’ve been there to help? Anyone can volunteer their time or donate to Feed My Starving Children through their various locations.
