Community Partnerships Expand FVSRA’s Impact

AURORA – The offices were quiet at Fox Valley Special Recreation Association (FVSRA) on Thursday morning as staff joined forces with Feed My Starving Children (FMSC) to help solve malnutrition and hunger.

Since its founding in 1987, FMSC believes hope starts with food, which is distributed internationally in the form of nutritious MannaPack meals. FMSC works with global partners who stay with communities for the long haul, empowering them to move from relief to development.

“We are very blessed to work with approximately 200 partners in about 70 countries throughout the world, says Kate Marcey, Volunteer Program Facilitator at FMSC. “These meals we are packing are a vital component in the process of transitioning individuals, families and communities out of chronic hunger and poverty and into self-sufficiency.”

MannaPacks are developed by food science and nutrition professionals to supplement nutritional needs and reduce problems with malnutrition.

“While providing outstanding therapeutic recreation experiences is what we are good at,“ says FVSRA’s Development Director Eric Smith, “partnerships with organizations like Feed My Starving Children allow us to make an impact beyond our expertise.”

Additional FVSRA community partners include CASA Kane County, Northern Illinois Food Bank and others. To learn more about the work of FMSC, visit
