Key Club Activity

Feed My Starving Children

Over 300 Students and adults gathered at West Forsyth High School for an all day event to pack close to 109,000 meals for the “Feed My Starving Children” program – a charity organization dedicated to providing nourishment to deserving children throughout the world.

The competition was fierce! Which one of eight stations could pack the most meals within a ten minute sprint? The winner? Everyone. From 8:00 am to 3:00 pm on October 19, close to 300 volunteers came to the West Forsyth High School cafeteria and engaged in packaging as many meals as possible to contribute much needed nourishment to hungry children throughout the world.

The West Forsyth High School Key Club in Clemmons teamed up with Little Richard’s Barbeque and Clemmons Kiwanis to prepare meals for less fortunate children around the world through an organization called Feed My Starving Children (FMSC).

The day long volunteer effort yielded 504 packed boxes, which equaled 108,864 meals. The packers averaged packing over 2 boxes per person per hour.  That is 72 packs of food per box, each pack serving six people. The usual average of boxes packed in one session is 0.8 per person.  It was necessary to stop before the official end of the event because everything had been packed.  The meals consisted of MannaPack™ Rice, soy and vitamin supplement. 

Under the direction of Theresa Bryant, the West Forsyth Key club has earned the reputation for enthusiasm and effective service in Clemmons and neighboring communities.  This was another example of what the club can do.

For the last year Little Richard’s BBQ has put on “Meal for Meal Mondays” at all five of their locations to raise funds for this event. For every meal sold on Mondays, Little Richard’s provides a meal for a starving child around the world.
