FEEDING KIDS. FEEDING SPIRITS. EMPOWERING COMMUNITIES!
Every year, millions of children die from preventable causes such as pneumonia, diarrhea, malaria and undernutrition. Hunger is still causing nearly half of deaths in children under 5 years old, and its estimate at least 6,200 children die each day from causes related to undernutrition. This is heartbreaking.
Feed My Starving Children (FMSC) believes hope starts with food. As a Christian nonprofit, FMSC is dedicated to seeing every child whole in body and spirit.
Nutrition allows children to grow, thrive and develop to their full potential.
"HE UPHOLDS THE CAUSE OF THE OPPRESSED AND GIVES FOOD TO THE HUNGRY."
- PSALM 146:7
UPDATE - LAKESHORE'S FMSC MOBILEPACK 2020
At this time, FMSC has cancelled all MobilePack events till March 2021 due to the Covid-19 virus. This is unfortunate but is being done after significant prayer and to protect the FMSC staff plus the packing volunteers.
This means that Lakeshore will not be hosting a FMSC MobilePack event in 2020.
In the interim, FMSC has been machine packing meals. As you might guess, worldwide demand is up significantly due the virus. FMSC's goal for 2020 was 350 million meals. Their current worldwide partners have requested 450 million meals. So the need is great and growing.
HELP SUPPORT FMSC
Lakeshore, although not packing this year, will continue to support FMSC by sending the cost of the 155,520 meals that we had planned to pack. The cost for Lakeshore support is just under $38,000. Lakeshore's contribution of $38,000 will allow FMSC to pay for a portion of the machine packed meals.
Please prayfully consider how you can help starving children and at the same time expose them to the love of Christ.
OVER THE PAST 8 YEARS LAKESHORE HAS MADE A SIGNIFICANT IMPACT
- Packed 1,580,688 meals
- Fed 4,327 kids for an entire year
- Had 7,350 volunteers
Thank you to everyone that participated in Lakeshore's FMSC events.
