LONGWOOD, Fla. — A Florida-based social charity that has rallied thousands of volunteers to package millions of meals for hungry people around the world is standing by with 100,000 meals for Floridians affected by Hurricane Matthew.
Dave Green, CEO of Feeding Children Everywhere, explains: “We have 100,000 meals ready to go. We are preparing to deliver to our partners in the hardest-hit areas of Florida so that they can begin distributing these meals in the immediate aftermath of Hurricane Matthew.”
Formed in the wake of the devastating 2010 earthquake in Haiti, Feeding Children Everywhere has grown from a movement conceived around a dining room table to a social charity with a far-reaching impact. To date, FCE has mobilized 388,000 volunteers to assemble 58 million meals for hungry people in 49 countries around the world. FCE’s domestic feeding program, U.S. Hunger, was formed in 2013 to provide meals to the 45 million Americans who live below the poverty line.
In addition to providing meals to those affected in Florida, FCE is also working to package and send meals to Haiti, which was devastated by Hurricane Matthew earlier this week. Click for details.
