How do we feed the world’s starving


Introduction: How are we feeding the starving?
This study required two different subjects that in rare circumstance are one. One is the analysis of the starving, the challenge, and humanity’s effort to feed them. The second is how the work of feeding the poor affects those doing it. A multifarious approach, but I could find no way to separate them because in the end, we are searching for a positive gain and both views are benefits of the effort. It is as if the starving are fed and the rescuers get nourishment for their souls, giving them the energy to make the monumental effort again.
Writing brings me pleasure, and knowledge by weighing the issues that have plagued me a lifetime, or tell the stories I have always wished to tell. Researching this issue brought me peace from learning the fate of the starving rests in the hands of these organization and their armies of volunteers. Thank you!
Before we tackle the entrée, we will take a quick look at the rating services. They provide a way to understand who and how and how well contributors are considering.
Due diligence can begin to be satisfied with a visit to the two large rating services web sites. I believe some in-depth study of internet search engines for swindles or fraud associated with the donor’s perspective charity followed by a through reading of the organizations web site is prudent. With all things we do, our common sense should be able to provide a thumb down or up.
Charity Navigator (www.charitynavigator.org) Charity Navigator is America’s largest rating service by far with over 6 million searches annually. This incredible workload drives them constantly expanding their ability to analyze in depth the fiscal responsibility, and sincere ethical reporting of charities worldwide. Founded by a successful businessman spurred to invention by past charity frauds, Mr. Dugan strove to provide the ability for average citizen donors to rate perspective charities for free. In 2002, Charity Navigator began to provide this internet service and the debate began.
By typing the charity’s name into the sites search engine, I was in turn provided a very detailed analysis of the charity I am researching. The search engine is in the top portion of the first page and the remainder of the site tells about Charity Navigator and its history and metrics used to create a cohesive rating, assuredly, it is mathematics. The website is full of tips for donors and explanations of challenge of contributing to worthy causes and not becoming bamboozled. The three-page assessment covered every aspect of fiscal health and weighs ethical reporting of costs used by the analyzed charity. Use this one time and you will see what I mean.
Charity Navigator is a non-profit relying on donors who feel the service is invaluable and available directly by telephone at (201) 818-1288, or by mail at 139 Harristown Road, Suite 201, Glen Rock, N.J., 07452.
The Charity Rater http://goodintents.org/the-charity-rater provides another source for analyzing fiscal health and ethical reporting. The format is a ten-minute survey that relies on an open website. Inquiring donors answer the survey with the charity’s web site for reference and receive an aggregate study.
GuideStar http://www.guidestar.org/Home.aspx provides in-depth analysis at a premium $750.00 a year, but the product is sufficient for government grant applications. It also offers a free search using the steps outlined in an email from GuideStar Information Services-Info@GuideStar.org GuideStar maintains an online database of nonprofit organizations in the U.S. You can use GuideStar to find the contact information for an organization, if available.

The juggernaut food producer
Feed My Starving Children (FMSC) produces food, formulas, developed by food scientists to reverse and prevent malnutrition Feed My Starving Children. MobilePackTM events allow people across the United States to pack life-giving meals. They have a rice-based meal and potato based meal scientifically produced for maximum nutrition. This charity is an expert on the plight and management of people starving. They provide self-subsistence programs that teach and supply the unique agricultural needs of the starving zone being managed. In 2012, more than 177,000 MobilePack volunteers packed over 41 million meals, with 204 events in over 30+ states.
Another avenue their product distributes is the six permanent packing stations. Feed My Starving Children (FMSC) has six permanent food-packing sites, and a nationwide MobilePackTM program. They also donate food by a food-aid application available on their site.
Permanent Sites are in Coon Rapids, MN (corporate headquarters), Chanhassen, MN, Aurora, IL Libertyville, IL, Schaumburg, IL, Tempe; AZ. With all eight cylinders roaring, FMSC produced 163 million meals in 2012, of which 99.6% of meals arrived securely.
The meals are donated to missions and humanitarian organizations in 55+ countries, who distribute the food to those with critical need. On the website I gleamed this “Nutrition is philanthropy’s best investment, yielding $30 for every $1 due to the education and self-reliance made possible by the healthy mental and physical development of children.”
In short, Feed My Starving Children provide the product, and distribute to charities local to the starving zone. Either at one of the permanent packing stations or at any organization who wish supply 500 volunteers to pack and enough capital to purchase 100,000 meals at 22 cents per meal. The organization uses the 500 volunteers to pack 100,000 meals in one, long day. They have to have enough structure to pack in under cover and a loading dock to receive the semi truck from Feed My Starving Children full of bulk food in boxes ready to pack.

Now we can look at the partners in this syndicate, an army of people feeding the world’s starving.

Child of Destiny http://www.childofdestinyonline.com:
“My name is Dr. AlyceJo Mwangi. Having been an orphan myself, I know how it feels to be hungry and homeless. My heart was so touched when I saw the starving and suffering at its worst in Kenya. Something inside of me said I could help. I asked myself,” how? How can I? How can one person help solve such a huge problem…?”

My husband Dr. Joe Symmon and I were inspired to start Child of Destiny, a 501(c)3 charitable organization, to break the cycle of poverty around the globe. We have helped feed, educate, clothe, and shelter thousands of children and their families throughout the years, and we are only just beginning to make a difference.” Quoted from Children of Destiny Web site
The HIV/AIDS pandemic impoverishes families and leaves behind a generation of orphans. Eight-hundred people die daily in Kenya. There are over 2 million orphans in Kenya. These orphans are much more than “Children In Need”. They are priceless gifts that we have the privilege of being the privilege of bringing mercy and the word of God.

After hurricane George devastated areas of the Dominican Republic in 1998, Rose worked from the DR with her old friend former Florida Congress Woman from Miami Carry Meek to release $29,000,000 out of committee through USAID to assist in the DR. At that time the Congresswoman suggested that Rose register Family Outreach with USAID as this could open more doors for her to help more people.

In 2004 and 2005, Family Outreach brought together many International Organizations to obtain donations of food, USDA dry milk, clothes, medical supplies, and medicines to distribute to needy schools, orphanages, and clinics throughout Haiti.

The 2007-2008 school years, Family Outreach fed a hot school lunch to over 20,000 schoolchildren in Jeremie, Haiti. Most all of the regional schools and orphanages were participating.

However, with open charcoal cooking, often on the ground, babies fall into the pots of boiling water, into the boiling rice, just into the charcoal itself sometimes. Accidents happen and where there are many people and many open fires, there are many burns.

Then shall the righteous answer him saying, Lord, when did we see you hungry and feed you, or thirsty and give you something to drink? When did we see you a stranger, invite you in or needing clothes, and clothe you? When did we see you sick or in prison and go to visit you?

The organization’s mission is to change the world for hurting and forgotten children by giving them hope in the love of Jesus Christ. By providing aid where war, natural disasters, and disease wreak havoc. These children know horrors most children will never know. Food, shelter, medicine, and education are not enough to heal their emotions. Many of the children suffer a childhood injury or preventable disease that steals any hope escaping poverty, and for some their lives. This is a vital step to achieve. Education is next in the process of developing each child. Many children we encounter in Africa have fallen behind in school tending for dying family members and unable to pay the school fees. Educating orphans helps them begin life with some tools to survive. Discipleship is one part of our effort where tremendous life transformation occurs. As children attend Bible clubs at the Care Points, they learn that God has a plan for them, and hope takes root in their lives. Once hope has taken root in their lives, we help the children turn their focus outward to helping and serving others. Leadership development helps them connect with their purpose to serve God and others and identify their unique talents.

Harvest Hands Ministries is a conservative, non-denominational ministry upholding traditional Biblical values. It is a 501 (C) (3) non-profit organization founded by Garry and Terese Mathewson in August 1999.
Since its inception, Harvest Hands Ministries has sought to share God’s love by meeting the spiritual and physical needs of the hungry and oppressed people in the Juarez area. This has been done through feeding programs, a student sponsorship program, and the distribution of clothing, medical care, and personal items. In addition, HHM has supported local churches with Sunday school materials, pastoral support, and Vacation Bible School programs. Currently, HHM has completed construction of a children’s shelter, Resplandor De Vida, which is a home to 24 needy and impoverished children. Work is underway on additional living facilities, which will double its capacity.

Healing Haiti is potentially eligible to be rated by Charity Navigator in the future. Imagine feeding your child a dirt cookie. There is a severe food shortage in Haiti. Many parents are not able to provide the basics of one meal a day for their children. To keep children from crying from hunger, they eat cookies made of dirt and vegetable oil to fill up and trick their tummies into feeling full… can you even imagine?
Healing Haiti is providing emergency food relief to Haiti with Feed My Starving Children. Since 2008, Healing Haiti has delivered 682,000 meals, or 54 tons, to schools, orphanages, and families in need.

Upon completion of Grace Village, a Feeding Program will feed an additional 75-125 street child in Titanyen. Children attending school typically receive one meal a day at school, but children who live on the streets or whose families cannot afford to send them to school often times go hungry. Over 100 adults, children, family, and friends came to help Healing Haiti re-pack 273,000 meals donated from Feed My Starving Children into water buckets for Haiti.
Most of these orphan children may not be adopted, but we have committed to equipping them to live a God centered life, one with significance. By caring, for their spiritual needs, their personal needs, educating them, and eventually teaching them a skill or trade, they will be able to be self-sufficient and provide for not only themselves but also their future family. Our goal is to elevate the next generation of Haitians leaders that will help build a better future for all.

Our aim is to build a sense of love, safety, and belonging initially through providing hot meals and a safe place to come to eat and sleep. After meeting the immediate needs, our mission intends to add schooling opportunities.

    Your passion shows through for the starving people of the world Coleman Weeks.

    • I am glad you can feel my message, thank you Annie. I would like to share with you a poem to be an introduction on Amazon for “The End of Humanity”
      “The End of Humanity”
      Sputtering to rise the world took a spin as life stirred and yawned at the end of it’s slumber of waiting to begin.
      The Sun grinned a wise smile knowing the mission, Sun understood all would wait for single-cell fission.
      God laughed and smacked his son Jesus’ knee, sharing his glee that it would not be long until Humanity.
      Jesus smiled and with a wink rubbed his chin, watching from the future they both knew what fixed to begin.

      The wind-swept planet stirred some rust dust, many eons passed before the monkey’s evolution was discussed.
      Both silver-blue cool or yellow-orange hot, the Earth’s light steadily nurtured Humanity a special homey spot.
      After some time the earth’s plates gyrated as mountains birthed valleys and streams cut rivers unabated.
      God and his son smiled while angels applauded, the blue seas twinkled as they rolled and yawed.

      Adam and Eve propagated then Abraham trekked as milk and honey baited.
      Noah and his critter filled ark floated and Joseph toiled colorfully coated.
      The tribes aged 50 generations with his wise rations so Moses could fight the Pharaoh with his army of nations.
      John baptized as Jesus chastised waiting to suffer their pain to help them purge the evil from their brain.

      Jewish Christians missioned a journey apostle led to Roman tyranny.
      Nero flamed then fiddled and blamed, many rulers turned away blind-eyed until Charlemagne cried.
      Popes took charge sometimes with errors looming large, all for goodness sake forgetting to give a Muslim a break
      Humanity’s evil still had a twitch, the armies marched scratching an itch and fight to the death with a fevered pitch.

      An earth life-long fight began, way back in the days of Clovis, a grudge to end all the evil times and so many of us.
      But love spurned by all, but Jesus waited heroically aiding through to modern times, even throttled some war crimes.
      In the end was it all for naught, or was the end truly Humanity’s start.
