At our April 19th breakfast meeting Kevin related the impressive work done by FMSC which has reduced world hunger since 1987 by sending volunteer-packed, nutritious meals to 70 countries. These meals are nutritionally designed to reverse and prevent malnutrition.  The organization sees that 99+% of the meals reach those in need through schools, orphanages, clinics and feeding programs to break the cycle of poverty. FMSC welcomes more than 1 million volunteers to pack nearly 273 million meals annually through its permanent sites and nationwide MobilePack program.
 
This year’s local MobilePack will be held at DelVal University October 25-29.  Community volunteers are expected to pack 1,000,000 meals during the event.  Sign-up can be done on-line beginning in September.  Several Rotarians have participated with their families and commented that it is a fun, heartwarming experience.
