Wildlands is committed to supporting efforts here in our community, and those efforts can also have an impact abroad. Feed My Starving Children is a highly rated, 501(c)3 charity where 93% of all donations go directly toward packing and distribution of these meals.
Over the last four years, thousands of volunteers from the Sacramento area have come together to pack more than 1.8 million meals to feed malnourished children around the world. While we don’t know where meals packed will go before they are packed, we always know they will go to children in need. In 2013, 272,000 of the meals we packed were sent to the Philippines — helping in that country after the devastating typhoon.
Wildlands team members and their families joined thousands of other volunteers as an effort to pack more than 500,000 meals. The volunteers came in all ages and walks — church groups, neighborhoods, corporate teams and sports teams — all working together to pack meals in a unique assembly line fashion.
In addition to supporting this cause with our labor, we also made a donation that sponsored 11,363 meals!
While the impact of this effort is global, it is also local as well. The Feed My Starving Children MobilePack gives local volunteers a hands-on opportunity to better understand the global hunger crisis — and make a difference in the lives of children worldwide. It’s also a great team-building activity for organizations like ours.
