Feed My Starving Children
Living Hope is delighted to partner with Feed My Starving Children to bring more than 2 Million meals to Haiti each year.
Living Hope Haiti Christian Mission (LHHCM) is a partner organization with Feed My Starving Children (FMSC). FMSC supplies packages of chicken flavored rice and soy specifically designed to fight malnourishment in children.
LHHCM feeds our 1400 students each school day with this food, and provides it to other schools, orphanages, and missions in Northern Haiti. You can see more about the food at FMSC.org.
In March 2010, Baptist Health South Florida did a mobile packaging event with FMSC at South Miami Hospital. Here is the description of the event from Baptists Resource Magazine:
"BAPTIST HEALTH GIVES 1 MILLION MEALS TO HAITI"
Even before the devastating earthquake in January, malnourishment was a huge problem in Haiti. Markets sell cookies made of clay for 4 cents so mothers can stave off their children's hunger pangs. To tackle the hunger problem, Baptist Health is committing some $200,000 to purchase the ingredients for one million meals for Haiti through an organization called Feed My Starving Children. Calvin Babcock, chairman of the Baptist Board, has worked with this organization through Living Hope Haiti Christian Mission.
The meals are packages of rice, soy protein, chicken broth and vitamins, and will be assembled in March by Baptist Health employees. (Hundreds of employees have already expressed a willingness to help with the Haiti Relief effort.) Baptist Healths chief operating officer, Wayne Brackin, has appointed a task force that is organizing the employee volunteer effort.
"Not everyone may be in a position to write a check. But any employee can assist in this hands-on effort to provide desperately needed food, Mr. Brackin said."
