Welcome to the Home Page for the Northern Colorado Slammin’ Famine Event!
Thanks to you we have 2,500 volunteers!
Together, let’s slam famine and help save the lives of starving children. On February 27th – 28th Northern Colorado is hosting a Feed My Starving Children FMSC MobilePack event that will provide up to 500,000 meals to children around the world. You can make a difference by contributing financially, signing up for a 2 hour packing session, or both. Feed My Starving Children (FMSC) is a nonprofit hunger relief organization that provides food to help communities in developing countries become self-sustaining. Through events like this one, FMSC provides opportunities for individuals, groups, families, businesses and churches to get involved. During a 2-hour packing session, volunteers measure and scoop ingredients, seal bags and prepare boxes for shipping to nearly 70 countries around the world. Donations cover 100% of food costs. We need to raise up to $60,000 in order to pack up to 500,000 meals.
