LONGWOOD, Fla. — Feeding Children Everywhere (FCE), a Florida-based social charity that has successfully mobilized 388 thousand volunteers to package 57 million healthy meals for hungry children and families around the world, will celebrate its sixth birthday this Saturday at the organization’s headquarters in Longwood.
The celebration will bring together over a hundred enthusiastic volunteers and supporters who will come together to prepare a special gift, assembling 25,000 meals for hungry families.
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, delivering millions of meals to 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.
Volunteer meal-packing events, or Hunger Projects, are done in assembly-line fashion and held throughout the country. Each Hunger Project draws up to 10,000 volunteers from corporations, houses of worship and various other groups working together toward a hunger-free world.
By partnering with food distribution partners and working with food pantries, NGOs, orphanages and schools, and providing them with much-needed healthy meals, FCE is helping to break the cycle of hunger and hopelessness here in the U.S. and abroad.
Dave Green, CEO for FCE and U.S. Hunger, explains: “Food meets a fundamental need, and meeting that need leads to restoration: restoration of children, restoration of families, restoration of veterans and seniors. Together, we’re helping transform communities and, ultimately, the world.”
