AIT employees team together for hunger relief organization
On Thursday, Sept. 1, team members from the department of regulatory affairs volunteered at Feed My Starving Children (FMSC), a non-profit hunger relief organization.
Founded in 1987, FMSC is the original and largest supplier of nutritionally complete, packaged meals for the world's hungry. The organization partners with human service agencies to deliver hand-packed meals to children in orphanages, schools, clinics and refugee camps all over the world.
Last year, FMSC sent over 124 million life-giving meals to over 70 countries thanks to the work of over 515,000 volunteers.
The organization operates solely on financial contributions and volunteer services and all of the resources are donated, which allows FMSC to produce meals at $0.24 each.
Groups of volunteers spend about two hours at their facilities measuring the ingredients, packing the food and preparing the boxes for shipment. Each meal is precisely formulated to provide culturally acceptable food and key nutrients for malnourished children.
AIT employees packaged 14 boxes of food – enough to feed four children for one full year!
