"Hunger is the world’s biggest solvable problem.” -- World Food Programme

If you have ever packed meals at Feed My Starving Children, you have likely heard stories about the power of this food in children's lives.

Emmanuel, Nelson, Omar, Marilyn…the names and stories become etched in our hearts. But what makes this food so special? 

In 1993, a team of Cargill food scientists and colleagues from General Mills and Pillsbury created a vitamin-and-mineral fortified rice meal specifically for malnourished children. This is what we now call MannaPack Rice™.

We now produce three special MannaPack meal formulas developed by food science and nutrition professionals. These meals supplement nutritional needs and reduce problems caused by undernutrition.

MannaPack Rice

As FMSC’s first and original food formula, MannaPack Rice is an excellent source of protein, carbohydrates and key nutrients culturally acceptable worldwide for anyone over the age of one.

MannaPack Potato-D

Created to help those suffering from diarrhea, this fortified potato and soy meal formula complements oral rehydration and assists in replenishing lost nutrients. Its smooth texture makes it appropriate for all ages, even children 6-24 months old.

MannaPack Potato-W

This fortified potato and soy meal formula is designed specifically as a weaning food to meet the nutrition needs of children 7-12 months old. It complements breast feeding and acts as a crucial supplement for children whose mothers don’t have access to the vital nutrition their babies desperately need to grow and develop.

MannaPack is certainly special, but it couldn’t do a thing for children if we didn’t have YOU to fund the ingredients and pack the meals. Thank you for providing hope and nourishment to children around the world.
