82 Volunteers, 3 Days, and 51,514 Meals
Apr 27, 2015
In January, twenty-two MTG team members packed 15,336 meals in 90 of the fastest minutes ever worked. 2.8 meals a second – MTG, efficiency on every front!
Established in 1987, Feed My Starving Children (FMSC) delivers food to hungry children around the world. They have delivered specially-designed vegetarian meals to children and their families in over 70 countries – including the United States after Hurricane Katrina.
In January, February, and March, MTG’s field and office staff went to FMSC’s location in Chanhassen, MN to lend a hand. In just three evenings, we packed enough meals to feed 141 children for an entire year. Eighty-two MTG employees and their spouses, children and grandchildren worked together with FMSC to pack 51,514 meals.
Way to go kids feeding kids! To all the children and grandchildren who lent a hand in February and March, thanks for going above and beyond.
While delivering over 1 billion meals, FMSC has earned a 4-star rating from Charity Navigator for 10 years in a row. Over 90% of their annual budget is devoted to serving hungry children around the world. FMSC’s sustained success inspired the MTG Charity Board to put our horsepower behind this noble organization.
In March, more than 50 MTG staff and family participated in our final day at Feed My Starving Children in Chaska, MN.

The goal of the MTG charity board is to plan projects that the entire company can take part in, pitching in together to improve our community and world. MTG will participate in Feed My Starving Children and Toys For Tots every year, as well as two other service projects. We hope to create lasting relationships with these organizations, making sure they know they can count on MTG to help out.
