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
||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.
