Feed My Starving Children and MobilePack™ Experiences

Founded in 1987, Feed My Starving Children (FMSC) is a Christian non-profit that provides nutritionally complete meals specifically formulated for malnourished children. Donations fund the meal ingredients. Volunteers hand-pack the meals. Meals are donated to FMSC food partners around the world, where kids are fed and lives are saved!

Is God calling you to feed the hungry? Answer His call.

Food for All MobilePackTM is a Success!

Incarnation hosted its 15th MobilePackTM on July 29-30, 2022, on site in Incarnation Hall. The event was a great success, in terms of packing meals as well as bringing the community together to support our ministry partner, Feed My Starving Children. During four shifts over two days, more than 350 volunteers packed 101,088 meals. That number translates into feeding 277 kids for one year.

Throughout the two-day packing event, many members of all ages from the Incarnation community and beyond showed up in a big way to help feed God’s kids. It was wonderful to see groups that consisted of friends, co-workers, members of community organizations, and multi-generations of family members.  Many groups of volunteers came for more than one packing shift. In addition to the volunteers packing meals, we had a number of people show up to support the MobilePack behind the scenes, helping the FMSC staff, supporting the packers and  helping with set up and clean up.

A new aspect of this MobilePack was the community meal that was served on Friday evening and Saturday over lunch. Volunteers were encouraged to attend before or after their packing shift to enjoy a summer meal and play lawn games and enjoy the beautiful summer weather. We had over 200 people enjoy a meal together over the two days.

We could not have done this event without the help of the many volunteers who packed meals and helped behind the scenes.     We also appreciate the support of the Incarnation staff and Congregational Council.   Finally, thank you to the Endowment Committee which provided a grant to fund the community meal.

Our next full-scale MobilePack will be April 26 – 30, 2023 at Incarnation.    Mark your calendars and visit our All Hands on Hope MobilePack page for more information.    You can also follow us on our social media channels for the most up-to-date information:

Our Ministry Partnership with Feed My Starving Children

In 2007, Incarnation hosted its first Feed My Starving Children (FMSC) MobilePack™. Since the first packing session, we knew this was going to become a meaningful tradition we wanted to make into an annual commitment to Feed My Starving Children. Six years later in 2013, FMSC became a formal ministry partner of Incarnation in 2013.

Over the years those of Incarnation and their friends have come together on a monthly basis to pack meals at FMSC’s local packing sites. Incarnation has also hosted almost 27,000 volunteers years over 12 annual All Hands on Hope” MobilePacks™ resulting in 7.5 million total meals being packed, feeding 20,564 children! And, hunger advocates within our community have traveled on five mission trips with FMSC to witness and serve meals packed to those most in need.

With God’s blessing, the congregation of Incarnation is living into its mission, Filled by God’s grace, we feed the hungry in heart, body, mind and spirit, through FMSC’s well-established meal-packing and distribution infrastructure for providing life-saving meals to people who need them all over the world.
