795 million people

go to bed every night without food in their stomachs.

Every 14 seconds

a child dies from hunger-related diseases.

This is a problem we can do something about.

Glen Ellyn Bible Church takes a strong stand to state the love of Jesus in word and in actions. God demonstrated his love toward us in that while we were unable to help ourselves, He sent Jesus to forgive sin. We consider it our privilege to engage together in ministries that allow us to share the outrageous love of Jesus with others. Feeding the hungry is one clear way to do this.

Demonstrating the presence of Jesus in our own lives, our own community, and to those around the globe is a huge priority for us. Feed My Starving Children is a Faith based anti-hunger Christian Ministry located in Minnesota. Since 2012, we have been privileged to partner with them, assembling more than one million meals for hungry children around the world. Since 2014, we have hosted an annual MobilePack right here in our own building, coming together with others in our community to help fight hunger, illness, and poverty, both physically and spiritually. Since we began the annual MobilePack we have packed 1.2 million meals feeding 3,469 kids for a year. Approximately 55,000 meals were distributed in Guatemala and 217,000 went to the Congo.

IN APRIL 2018, GOD USED OUR MOBILEPACK TO ACCOMPLISH THE FOLLOWING:

  • 1,023 PEOPLE

    Many volunteers engaged in serving and packing meals for those who are hungry.

  • $61,000 raised

    More than $60,000 of our dollars were given toward this cause.

  • 286,824 MEALS

    In just 3 days, we packed enough meals to feed 767 kids for a year.

I am happy to say that 99% of the meals packed by FMSC are delivered with accuracy to 70 different countries! Some of our meals have gone to North Korea, Haiti, the Dominican Republic, and Madagascar.

Through several days of hard work and some financial sacrifice, God used our community to provide food for up to 785 kids every day for an entire year. We are looking forward to April 26-28, 2019 when we’ll host another event to fight hunger. Registration is scheduled to begin March 2019 for packing sessions. We hope you will be able to joint with us.

Sincerely, for the entire GEBC MobilePack Team,

John Foster
Care and Outreach Pastor
