Wheels up! The first leg of our trip will take us to FMSC's Mesa, AZ packing facility, where we'll pray over a food shipment to the Philippines.

Next, we travel to the island of Negros in the central Philippines. We’ll deliver MannaPack® Rice to a family near the city of Dumaguete and see one creative way they prepare MannaPack® meals.

Then we’ll make our way across the island to the outskirts of Bacolod. A pastor will share the impact of COVID-19 on his community and the difference the FMSC food makes.

Approximately 7:45 p.m. - Post-trip Zoom conversation
Immediately after the trip, join us for a Zoom call with FMSC CEO Mark Crea and ICM staff. Learn about ICM’s Transform program, which distributes FMSC meals to its participants.

ICM staff will share experiences, insights and highlights.

The conversation will last about 30 minutes.
