Willmar Mobile Pack

As we have gotten to know our local Somali neighbors, we have become aware of a severe famine affecting East Africa, including Somalia.  There are currently 1 million children acutely malnourished in Somalia alone.  We feel compelled to do something about this situation with our local Somali friends. 

At Willmar Middle School on June 9 th and 10 th our community will be doing just that: making a difference. Through a Feed My Starving Children (FMSC) MobilePack TM , we will produce 101,088 meals for children in Somalia.  FMSC is a Christian nonprofit hunger relief organization working with volunteers to produce MannaPack TM Rice, a scientifically formulated food formula that is culturally acceptable worldwide. Organizations in nearly 70 countries around the world distribute these meals to children in greatest need. To learn more about FMSC, visit fmsc.org.

 We invite you to join us in producing these meals. We need to recruit 500 volunteers and raise 22¢ for each meal—$22, 239 total—for this MobilePack.

Testimonials
From our community volunteers

I made connections with community members and found many common visions.  I have begun to get more active in the community due to the connections.

Alumni, Class of 2016

“I'm honored to be part of Vision 2040 and the team that is forging the future of the Willmar Lakes Area community. We are a strong vibrant community that works hard and works together through partnerships and collaborative efforts. This spark of leadership for this is caused by people willing to risk failure to reach for success. We have seen there's no limit to what a group can do if the individuals don't care who gets the credit.”

Ken Warner, Willmar Lakes Area Chamber of Commerce

“I'm proud to volunteer and support the efforts of Vision 2040 because creating a healthy community takes a collabortive effort. No one person or entity can create a community where people want to live and work and play, but working together we can create it. Vision 2040 started with an inclusive effort to bring together people from across our region to articulate their vision of the future of our region's communities. The goals that emerged from that vision offer everyone the opportunity to share in the collaborative work necessary to create a healthy and vibrant region--and that's a good thing for all of us.”

Dr. Douglas Allen, Ridgewater College
