Mention the holidays and most of us are immediately transported to a favorite family tradition: preparing time-honored recipes, baking cookies, decorating our homes and spending time with family and friends. Increasingly, Dallas - Fort Worth area families are creating a new tradition of giving back to their community during the holidays, particularly through service opportunities in which the entire family can participate.

This year, Feed My Starving Children (FMSC), a Christian non-profit that tackles world hunger by sending volunteer-packed, nutritious meals to 70 countries, invites families to start or continue a holiday tradition of service by volunteering at the Hope Filled Holiday event Sunday, December 2 and Monday December 3 at the Irving Convention Center.

This MobilePack event will give individuals and families the opportunity to join more than 4,000 volunteers to pack 750,000 meals over the course of the two days. Each two-hour volunteer shift includes an orientation, time spent packing meals in an assembly-line fashion and the opportunity to learn more about hunger in our world and how FMSC works to alleviate it. Families will learn more about the problem of hunger around the world and feel good about the positive impact they have made through packing nutritious meals.

Volunteering at the Hope Filled Holiday event can truly be a multi-generational endeavor. Kids as young as five can pack meals if accompanied by an adult. There are seated jobs available for those who cannot stand for a two-hour packing session. Volunteers need to register at http://fmsc.org/txholiday

Feed My Starving Children Offers Hope Blend

 

Here’s a twist on National Coffee Day — people can drink their favorite beverage and help feed hungry kids at the same time, by purchasing Hope Blend from Feed My Starving Children (FMSC). FMSC works with volunteers to pack meals to be sent to starving children in 70 countries around the world. At all of the FMSC sites they have MarketPlace shops, selling items from the communities they serve. One of those items is coffee from Nicaragua, produced by the Fabretto Coffee Cooperative. Fabretto also runs a feeding program for kids — serving more than 1 million meals to local school kids each year. 

 

People can purchase FMSC’s Hope Blend coffee at the FMSC MarketPlace at 1680 N. Glenville, Richardson, Texas, or online at www.fmscmarketplace.org. Each $15 one-pound bag provides 33 FMSC meals.
