Stories of Feeding God's Children Hungry in Body & Spirit

Every night, millions of children go to bed hungry

Every night, millions of children go to bed hungry

Around the world, mothers are putting their children to bed hungry. Millions of children, every night.

Maybe you’ve had your own struggles and can understand that kind of heartbreak. Or maybe seems unfathomable for your own family.

FMSC partners work in some of the hungriest places in the world. They distribute meals to mothers who have put their children to bed with hungry stomachs night after night. When those moms receive a box of MannaPack® meals, the relief is unmistakable. Joy floods her face as the weight of her child’s hunger is lifted from her shoulders.

And that’s because of generous donors like you.

Millions of children go to bed hungry every night. But Mary’s children don’t — not anymore.

After her sister died, Mary* adopted all four orphaned children — with the five children she already had, Mary is raising nine children on one income.

Mary and her family live in Kenya, where one of every four children under five have stunted growth from undernutrition.

She works hard, but Mary struggles to pay school fees and rent while also putting food on the table. Some nights, the whole family went to bed hungry.

When Mary began to receive MannaPack meals through FMSC partner Care for AIDS, she was overjoyed. “The MannaPack [meals] mean so much to my children and I! Now my children sleep with a full stomach.”

Now that Mary can provide MannaPack meals for her children, she’s able to use the money she earns to pay her bills — she’s even saving up to start a business so she can break the cycle of poverty for her family. Mary has hope.

“I thank God for every person who has been a part of the program that allows my family and me to have food on the table.” — Mary in Kenya
