Over the past 20+ years, Feed My Starving Children (FMSC) volunteers have produced more than 1 billion meals. As a MobilePack host, you have become part of our team! Thank you for joining us! To help you spread the word about your MobilePack, we have created this MobilePack Promotion Toolkit. Use these publicity materials to jump-start your event—and to keep up the momentum throughout your planning process.
Branding: Event Name & Website
When coming up with your Event Name, do not use "Feed My Starving Children" or "FMSC" alone in the title. If using our organization's name, you must add "MobilePack" to the title to avoid confusion with our permanent sites and national identity. Examples: "Sioux Falls FMSC MobilePack" or "Bethlehem Lutheran MobilePack." Similarly, if you are creating an Event Website and you want to include our organization's name in the URL, you must also include "mobilepack." Examples: "phoenixmobilepack.org" or "fmscmobilepackinmiami.org."
Hang up these posters in your church, business, or other community hot spots. The Introduction poster can help introduce the event. The Donations poster will help open the conversation about fundraising. The Announcement posters can serve as a "save the date" to get the buzz going. To keep up your momentum, add the Update Cards to your Announcement posters. The Volunteer Shifts posters will be available through your FMSC MobilePack Event Planner once you have confirmed your packing schedule.

Share more information about MobilePack and FMSC. Print and share these Flyers or use them as bulletin inserts. Flyers are two-sided: the back is pre-set with text about FMSC, and the front has a space for you to customize for your event. Show the MobilePack Experience Video at meetings or before worship services. This can also be downloaded from our Vimeo page.
Use this Letterhead for more direct person-to-person contact. Just add your MobilePack event name, number, and location. Use the sample text to contact Individuals, Churches, and Businesses. Letters are formatted to tri-fold into No. 10 window envelopes. Adapt the text to fit your event and your community.
