Every day, hunger kills nearly 8,000 kids under age 5. That's 1 every 10 seconds. Every night, more than a billion people go to bed hungry. That's 1 in 6 people!
On April 29 & 30, 2011, we'll be partnering with Feed My Starving Children (FMSC) to conduct a huge MobilePack event here in San Jose. In just two days, we'll be hand-packing tens of thousands of nutritious meals for starving children in developing nations.
The formula for these meals was developed by food scientists from Cargill and General Mills specifically for children struggling with extreme malnutrition. This food product includes rice, soy, vegetables, a vegetarian-based chicken flavoring, and a vitamin and mineral mix. Each meal costs only 19 CENTS to produce!
4others has committed to packing a minimum of 100,000 MEALS during this two-day event. That means we'll need to raise at least $19,000 to pay for the meals, and recruit enough volunteers to fill 500 two-hour packing shifts!
Donate today to feed a child.
$19 = 100 meals
$70 = Feed a child for 1 year
100% of all donations received by 4others will be used to provide life-saving meals in partnership with Feed My Starving Children (FMSC).
