Dallas based McQueary Henry Bowles Troy (MHBT) employees rallied together with other Dallas volunteers to help pack over 1 million meals for starving children in support of nonprofit, "Feed My Starving Children". Volunteers worked tirelessly to pack as many meals as they could during this three day volunteer event. Overall 1,003,104 meals were packed! That means 2,748 children will be fed for an entire year!
Founded in 1987, Feed My Starving Children is a non-profit Christian organization committed to feeding God's children hungry in body and spirit. The approach is simple: children and adults hand-pack meals specifically formulated for malnourished children, and ships these meals to nearly 70 countries around the world.
IICF is proud to recognize these outstanding industry volunteers as members of the IICF Texas Southeast Division.
