WACO, Texas (Sept. 19, 2014) – For the third consecutive year, Baylor student-athletes, coaches and staff have volunteered to prepare more than 100,000 meals to feed thousands of starving children in the developing world. Through a partnership with Twin Cities-based Feed My Starving Children (FMSC), nearly 500 volunteers will prepare 100,000 life-saving meals at an FMSC MobilePackTM event in the Ferrell Center on Monday, Sept. 22nd, from 2-8 p.m.
In its first two years, Baylor Athletics has packed nearly 218,000 meals for FMSC.
"Feed My Starving Children continues to afford our student-athletes, coaches and staff an exciting ministry opportunity to positively contribute to the lives of underprivileged young people around the world and fight hunger through preparing and packaging 100,000 meals," said Baylor Director of Athletics Ian McCaw. "This event embodies our department's core values and is a prime example of what makes Baylor so unique and special."
Now in its 27th year, FMSC is a unique ministry that provides meals to 70 countries around the world in a large-scale relief project started in 1987 by a Minnesota businessman who felt called by God to help feed the starving children of the world during a humanitarian visit to Honduras. In 2013, more than 208,000 MobilePackTM volunteers packed over 50 million meals, with 206 events in over 38+ states.
