ILoca Gives Back at Feed My Starving Children

ILoca Services knows that at the core, only one thing matters: family. We do what we do so that we can feed our families, just like everybody else. Even better, we’re able to do jobs that we love with people we care about. Unfortunately, not everyone is as lucky as we are. People around the world face starvation no matter how hard they work. Feed My Starving Children (FMSC), a Christian nonprofit organization that aims to feed malnourished children around the world, is changing that.

The process is simple:

1. Volunteers scoop nutrient-rich ingredients into FMSC’s MannaPack™ bag
2. The bag is sealed and placed in a box
3. Distribution partners ship boxes to needy communities

Our Feed My Starving Children Experience

Feed My Starving Children Totals: 83 boxes, 35,856 meals, $7,888.32 cost.
ILoca’s total contributions. We were joined by many other groups of volunteers, as well.

ILoca Services visited Feed My Starving Children’s Aurora, IL location on Tuesday, June 5. With more than 25 volunteers, ILoca Services quickly adapted to the process of creating a baby food called MannaPack™ Potato-W.  The weaning food’s nutrient-rich ingredients give 7-12 month-old babies a chance.
FMSC’s website is rife with success stories, such as that of the eight-month-old Haitian baby Judeson. Before Judeson began eating Potato-W formula, he weighed only four pounds. Now he weighs ten pounds and is learning to stand. We are proud to say that, alongside other local volunteers, we were able to send 85 boxes of baby food to Jamaica and Haiti. These 85 boxes hold 35,856 servings of baby food and cost $7,888.32.
 
Feed My Starving Children believes that food is the foundation of stability. To date, they have provided 2,110,439,152 meals to people in need. The organization is consistently rated “Excellent” in financial accountability by CharityWatch. 
 
We would highly recommend making a visit! Not only did we accomplish a lot, we had tons of fun. It was a wholesome opportunity for co-worker bonding as well as an opportunity for ILoca Services to give back. Check out our photos below and reserve your volunteer spots today!
