The Networking Committee is encouraging MNLA members to gather and give back this fall.

MNLA has arranged for our group to volunteer at Feed My Starving Children in in Eagan. Founded in 1987, Feed My Starving Children (FMSC) is a Christian non-profit that provides nutritionally complete meals specifically formulated for malnourished children. 

Feed My Starving Children offers volunteers a one-of-a-kind experience. You’ll hand-pack rice, soy, dried vegetables and a nutritionally complete blend of vitamins and minerals into bags which are then sealed, boxed, placed on pallets and shipped to reach the neediest children around the world. 

Gather your co-workers, and help turn hunger into hope with your own two hands by packing nutritious meals for hungry children around the world.

$10.00 per person will hold your spot. All money collected by MNLA will be donated to Feed My Starving Children.

Our scheduled time is 2:30 p.m. - 4:30 p.m. Sign up online or contact Sue Flynn at 651-633-4987. You will receive an email confirmation with details when you register.
