Do not withhold good from those to whom it is due, when it is in your power to do it. Do not say to your neighbor, 'Go, and come again, tomorrow I will give it' - when you have it with you. Proverbs 3:27-28

Feed My Starving Children (FMSC) which is a non-profit Christian organization committed to feeding God’s starving children hungry in body and spirit. United Caribbean Trust seeks to partner with Feed My Starving Children (FMSC) which is a non-profit Christian organization committed to feeding God’s starving children hungry in body and spirit. The approach is simple: volunteers of all ages hand-pack meals designed specially for starving children, and FMSC ships the meals to more than 50 countries around the world.

Feed My Starving Children was founded as a Christian nonprofit in 1987 through the efforts of a Minnesota businessman who felt called by God to help feed the starving children of the world during a humanitarian visit to Honduras. He returned to the Twin Cities to develop a method of large-scale relief.
His efforts, energy and resources resulted in the development of a food mixture that would be easy and safe to transport, simple to make with only boiling water, and culturally acceptable worldwide. This basic formula of rice, high protein soy nuggets, vegetables, vitamins and flavoring is still used by FMSC today.

In addition to this formula, FMSC needed to develop a cost-effective means of producing the completed meals in quantities that would make a real difference in alleviating world hunger. Initially, FMSC tested the possibility of using packaging machines, but this solution proved to be expensive and cumbersome. In 1993, a church group stopped by the FMSC facility to see if there might be an opportunity to volunteer with FMSC. That providential meeting gave birth to FMSC’s volunteer packing approach.

About FMSC Food

FMSC developed a formula consisting of:

  • Rice, the most widely accepted grain around the world.
  • Extruded soy nuggets, providing maximum protein at lowest cost.
  • Vitamins, minerals and a vegetarian chicken flavoring to give growing children the critical nutritional elements they need.
  • Dehydrated vegetables for flavor and nutrition.

Packaged in small pouches—each of which provides six highly nutritious meals—this easy-to-prepare food blend has won rave reviews all over the world. While the formula was designed to save the lives of severely malnourished and starving children, the ingredients also improve the health, growth and physical well-being of children who are no longer in immediate danger of starvation. A team of food scientists continues to monitor the FMSC formula to ensure that it meets nutritional needs for the world’s hungry children.

A single bag of food—which provides meals for six children—costs around $1 to produce, and 95 percent of all contributions to Feed My Starving Children goes directly toward the food program.

A container of food contains over 140,000 meals and this could feed 500 children in school for a year. It has been estimated that it will cost US $6000 to transport the food to Haiti.

UCT is seeking to work with the Seven Day Adventist Church of Barbados to raise funds to share this container with the Adventist children of Haiti and the orphans in Bon Repos.
