The Lincoln Inn Family Restaurant in downtown DeKalb will be partnering with Feed My Starving Children and MakeADifference2K11 through the month of November.
Every day 18,000 children die of starvation or starvation related causes. Founded in 1987, Feed My Starving Children (FMSC) is a non-profit, Christian organization committed to feeding starving children hungry in body and spirit. In 2010 FMSC produced 130 million meals with the help of more than 416,000 volunteers. Working with food scientists, FMSC developed MannaPack Rice that contains over twenty vitamins and minerals. Providing protein from extruded soy nuggets, these meals are inexpensive, easy to transport, contain no filler and are prepared simply by boiling water. They provide everything a child needs to thrive, not just survive.
This November 17th-20th, with the financial and physical support of local residents and organizations, Make a Difference 2K11 will be packing 500,000 meals at a mobilepack event at The Suter Foods facility in Sycamore Illinois.
For the entire month of November, The Lincoln Inn Restaurant will participate by offering all Lincoln Inn customers an opportunity to donate their earned Rewards Points to FMSC. For every purchase with points donated to FMSC, The Lincoln Inn will contribute 10% of the purchase amount to fund this year’s mobilepack event. It is easy to support this event – just tell your server you would like to donate your rewards points to Feed My Starving Children.
It only takes $88 to feed one child for an entire year. Please help in the goal of funding nourishing meals for as many children as possible in the upcoming year.
