Every year, millions of children die from preventable causes such as pneumonia, diarrhea, malaria and undernutrition. Hunger is still causing nearly half of deaths in children under 5 years old. Sauber Mfg Co has again partnered with Feed My Starving Children to help facilitate and fund a mobile pack event in our community.
This year’s event had 1,912 volunteers that packed a total of 554,256 meals; which feeds 1,518 kids for a year. The event raised $495,000. Of that, Sauber Mfg and its employees contributed $20,970, an amount that will feed 238 kids for an entire year!
FMSC works with food distribution partners that stay with communities for the long haul, empowering them to move from relief to development. FMSC meals are developed by food science and nutrition professionals to supplement nutritional needs and reduce problems with malnutrition. Nutrition allows children to grow, thrive and develop to their full potential.
