DeKalb and Sycamore School District employees, families, and friends teamed up this past weekend for the Feed My Starving Children (FMSC) mobile pack event. During the event that ran from Nov. 10 – Nov.13, more than 350 volunteers from each district packed 1,174176 meals, surpassing the goal set of 1,040,000. This is the 14th year that volunteers from both school districts have participated in the DeKalb/Sycamore Challenge held at the Suter Center in Sycamore. Along with packing meals, more than $300,000 was raised to cover the cost of the meals. FMSC is a non-profit organization whose mission is to feed starving children throughout the world. FMSC works with food distribution partners to provide sustainable nutrition so that communities may move from relief to development. 

This year at the Saturday, 9:00 am shift the DeKalb/Sycamore Community reached 15 million meals packed over all the years this event has been running with that box packed by our own Education Center team. DeKalb/Sycamore School Districts are making a difference!
