Groups from Garver’s Frisco and Tulsa offices recently hand-packed meals specifically formulated for malnourished children through local Feed My Starving Children volunteer events. The non-profit ships meals to nearly 70 countries around the world in an effort to end child hunger.
Garver team members and their families packaged meals of rice soy nuggets, vitamins, minerals, and dehydrated vegetables into small heat-sealed bags, each of which will provide nutritious meals for six children.
“Volunteering with FMSC served as a reminder of how easy it is to do something good for others when you work together,” said Garver Project Engineer Andrew Snyder. “It amazes me that in just under two hours we helped pack enough meals to feed 98 children for an entire year. That helps motivate me to be more selfless with my time and to look for other ways to give back to my community.”
Each volunteer station scooped, bagged, weighed, sealed, and boxed food. The entire event produced 35,856 meals. Garver has previously volunteered with Feed My Starving Children and is committed to fostering relationships with organizations that make the world a better place.
