Feed My Starving Children is a Christian non-profit organization that coordinates the packaging and distribution of food to people in developing nations. Founded in 1987, it has reached out to more than 70 countries.

The Early Act Club is helping to bring the Rotary message to our youth and community. Early Act is providing leadership and community responsibility training for our elementary school students. The total cost of supporting our Early Act group and funding The Feed My Starving Children event is $1000. The Feed My Starving Children event emphasizes the global community and their needs. The students have participated in: Fundraising for Shelter Box, Letters to Our Troops, Random Acts of Kindness Day, and tree planting in the community.

The club will also partner with our local high school Interact club who can assist in volunteering service hours with the Early Act. The opportunity to partner with both the Early Act club and our Interact club will promote further collaboration among local clubs and will provide us great opportunities to further generate Rotary and Interact club awareness in our community.
