MUG Charitable Initiative: Feed My Starving Children

Chairman Brad Grant has selected Feed My Starving Children (FMSC) as the 2018 MUG Charitable initiative. This amazing, volunteer-driven group spends more than 90% of total donations on packing nutritious meals for starving children across the U.S. and internationally. The group consistently receives the highest awards for integrity and trustworthiness, and each meal costs less than 25 cents.

Founded in 1987 by Minnesota businessman Richard Proudfit, FMSC is a Christian non-profit organization that provides nutritionally complete meals specifically for malnourished children. Donations fund the meal ingredients, and adult and youth volunteers pack them, and the meals are distributed to the kids through an exceptional network of missions and humanitarian organizations.

“We believe that food is the foundation for all other progress. To a starving child, hope can only truly begin once a reliable source of nutritious food has been established. Food assistance is a vital component in the process of transitioning individuals, families and communities out of chronic hunger and poverty and into self-sufficiency.”

MUG members can make checks payable to FMSC either in advance or on-site at the conference.
