Experience ‘Volun-tourism’ - a truly inspirational way to have fun and give back at the same time!
Start your amazing day at Feed My Starving Children, and help continue FMSC’s mission of eliminating starvation in children throughout the world by hand packing meals specially formulated for malnourished children.

Please note: Participants should wear no jewelry, and be able to stand for 1.5 hours - although there are some sitting jobs sitting, and breaks are encouraged if needed.

At the end, learn how many meals were packed, and when and where they are headed.

Just down the road is Lambs Farm where they've been assisting the developmentally disabled for over 50 years. Enjoy lunch at their Magnolia Cafe and Bakery which features foods and bakery items prepared on the premises while staff members explain their mission of empowering others. Explore the shops where many residents work - Dogwood Pet Shop and Boutique, The Cedar Chest Thrift Shop, and the Sugar Maple Country Store featuring Lambs' famous butter cookies, jams, confections and gift items.

Trip includes transportation by Park District bus, and lunch. Minimal walking but extensive standing.
