A highlight of the gathering was club member John Crudele’s testimonial to the program’s power and effectiveness. John just returned from the Philippines, where a “supplementary feeding program” partnership between FMSC and Risen Savior Missions in the Twin Cities is using the meal packs to dramatically reduce malnutrition in the Diocese of Marinduque. According to John, the program has reduced malnutrition from 25 percent to 3 percent, and now there are plans to spread the program to other areas of the Philippines.
