Phoenix Office Volunteers at "Feed My Starving Children"

Members in Phoenix are helping to eliminate child starvation through Feed My Starving Children, an organization striving to "instill compassion in people to hear and respond to the cries of those in need."

"I really enjoyed this event," Dave Sabers shared. "You can volunteer somewhere and sometimes wonder if you made a real difference in the world. Feed My Starving Children was an opportunity to make a difference, to help prepare food that can be delivered where it is most needed and in a simple format that can be preserved and prepared in primitive households. It was also fun, working as a team while rocking out to '80s music and competing with other teams to see who can pack more – and of course the Stanley Consultants team set the record for the day."

The meals, consisting of one type of rice formula and two types of potato formula, were designed by food scientists at Cargill and General Mills to meet the nutritional needs of malnourished children ages four through eight. More than 600,000 volunteers have helped to package over 160 million meals, shipped to nearly 70 countries around the world.

Barbara Schwab, one our Phoenix Community Service Champions, shares that once a month Phoenix members are part of this effort. So far, they have helped pack over 10,000 meals and contributed over $2,000. Dave Yoak added, "It is extremely rewarding to have the opportunity to produce a simple packet of food that can have such a dramatic impact on one of the most vulnerable among us, a child born into poverty. To repeat this process hundreds of times in a couple of hours of personal effort is a great lesson in how those who are blessed with so much can share just a little to help so many."
