"Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed people can change the world. Indeed, it is the only thing that ever has."

Margaret Mead

Recipe Reverses Effects of Starvation!

Unlike much of the food distributed to the hungry in third world countries, Fight Against Hunger meals assembled by FFCC actually work to reverse the effects of starvation.  The secret is a revolutionary food package that has been developed by some of the world's leading food scientists at Cargill, Pillsbury, General Mills and ADM. This one package provides six nutritionally-complete servings to feed starving children around the world as well as the hungry here at home- and all this for pennies a day.


Interested In Donating Or Sponsoring An Event?

Food packaging events are held as often as funds are raised to support an event.  The cost of one meal is 25 cents and covers the cost of the rice, protein, vitamins and vegetables as well as the cost to ship & track the food to its final destination.  Shipping costs can vary depending on where the food is being sent.  Donations toward a future event are always welcome just click on our donate button and designate your contribution to 'food packaging'.  FFCC looks forward to the day when we will be packaging meals every weekend, including the international destinations where we serve.

To volunteer at our public food packaging events, you can sign up by going to our online registration site and sign up for a 1-2 hour time slot.  We also welcome those who are interested in providing leadership at our events.  You will find both the calendar of  our 2017 scheduled events and the link to our registration site when registration is open, in the left column of this page.


FFCC is committed to providing nutritious meals to vulnerable populations around the world. Our efforts support local agriculture projects as well as supplemental emergency relief
