To register to participate, email Jim Bateman, firstname.lastname@example.org, and include your name, the number of adults and children, a contact phone number and an email address. Feed My Starving Children asks for a donation at the event, but there is no fee or obligation other than to serve. Donate as the spirit moves you. Each meal costs 22 cents to produce, and several hundred are packed during the two-hour packing session.
Unique gifts are available at the FMSC Marketplace. Watch this video below to see one man’s story about how making and selling wreaths has helped him feed his family and keep his children in school.
