Last night, friends and families of Beanstalk Revenue Management volunteered with Feed My Starving Children (FMSC) to help pack 17,064 meals for hungry kids and adults around the world. While the fast-paced, energetic environment ensured that we all had a a really fun time, the much greater joy was in helping address the very real problem of hunger and malnutrition in the world.
FMSC is based in the Twin Cities, but has a notably global impact. Last year, the organization distributed 229,236,216 meals across more than 70 countries worldwide. The 17,000 meals we helped to pack will go into a special "reserve bank" of food that is maintained to be deployed to locations that experience an unexpected crisis, like an earthquake or epidemic.
A big thank you to all who joined us for this enjoyable and valuable event. You made a difference! Check the incredible people and mission of FMSC, along with various volunteer opportunities, at www.fmsc.org.
