Feed My Starving Children

Feed My Starving Children (FMSC) believes hope starts with food. As a Christian nonprofit, FMSC is dedicated to seeing every child whole in body and spirit. FMSC works with food distribution partners that stay with communities for the long haul, empowering them to move from relief to development. FMSC meals are developed by food science and nutrition professionals to supplement nutritional needs and reduce problems with malnutrition. Nutrition allows children to grow, thrive and develop to their full potential.

The impact of FMSC's mission is far-reaching. Their work not only impacts children and communities in desperate need but it impacts the hearts and lives of FMSC volunteers and donors. 

Over 8 years of mobile packs at our downtown Fort Worth campus, nearly 10,000 volunteers have packed over 1,000,000 meals at a cost of over $250,000! This means that nearly 3,000 kids have been supplied a nutritious meal for one year through St. Paul's & Summit's partnership with FMSC.

Dr. John & Ione Podgore - Malawi

Dr. John & Ione Podgore started Chikondi Malawi.

The purpose of Chikondi Malawi is to alleviate suffering and improve the lives of disadvantaged children in Africa. The terrible toll of HIV/AIDS is not limited to the sick and dying. It has created a generation of orphans. Extended family (particularly the grandmothers, “agogos”) do their best to care for the children left behind, but most are already overburdened with their own hunger and health issues. In addition, although Malawi has faced drought before, multiple years of persistent drought have driven the needs of this already-vulnerable population to an unprecedented high. Life is difficult for these precious children. Without adequate nutrition, they will weaken. They will lose their stamina, mental capacity to complete their required school work, and ability to combat the disease threats in this environment – which include diarrhea, pneumonia, tuberculosis and malaria. Nutrition provided in their daily meals at the orphan feeding center provides their bodies with the capacity to overcome the obstacles challenging them daily, and give them hope for a brighter future.

Water To Thrive

Water to Thrive is a Christian non-profit founded in 2008 as a result of a small group of Gospel-inspired Christians motivated to act as a result of the global water crisis. Since Dick Moeller founded Water to Thrive, over 1,200 clean water wells have improved the lives of more than 600,000 people.

Through prayer and financial support, the Summit & St. Paul community has funded more than 50 wells in rural, impoverished African communities. 

Each $5,000 well serves more than 500 people for 20 years! Learn more about Water to Thrive HERE.
