Through a partnership between Central & Western North Dakota and Twin Cities-based Feed My Starving Children (FMSC), hundreds of volunteers will work to feed thousands of starving children in the developing world.  This FMSC MobilePackTM event will take place November 23, 2013 at the North Dakota State Fair Center in Minot, ND. 
This event was first brought to North Dakota in 2010 and was an overwhelming success. 300,000 food packages were created and 1,600 volunteers donated their time to assist.  In 2013, FMSC committee members plan to reach even higher with a goal of 500,000 food packages to be created.
The FMSC Committee is encouraging churches, organizations and individuals in Central & Western North Dakota to support this MobilePack TM event by making a donation and volunteering to package food.  To learn more, make a donation or register a team, visit www.fundraising.fmsc.org/Minot .
