"I am incredibly excited to participate in the Millennium Fellowship program because I am always seeking ways to be globally engaged and aspire to improve diplomatic ties between the world's superpowers and underdeveloped nations, which is why I am pursuing studies in Mandarin Chinese and Spanish and a global business degree in Supply Chain Management. I also look forward to learning from my peers in the Millennium Fellowship program and from the mentors in the program so I can better impact my community around me, locally and internationally. Working with Feed My Starving Children has an incredible international reach to communities who are facing natural disasters, severe poverty, and malnutrition every day and serves them by not only serving food but also providing job and empowerment opportunities. This organization has been incredibly meaningful to me throughout my life as I have had the opportunity to travel to some of these countries to see poverty firsthand and recognize the great potential of these services and goods for these communities. I am excited to begin our project and get the ASU and local community involved in this mission!"
Millennium Fellowship Project
The Feed My Starving Children Project would consist of gathering a team of highly motivated individuals to attend two, 2-hour services of packing food each week. With each session, they will gather a team of eleven people and pack an average of at least 30 boxes and aspiring for the goal of 33 boxes of food. Each box of food contains about 216 meals, so at the end of each session, our team should have packed at least 6,480 meals (17 children) to 7,128 meals (19 children) each session, twice a week, every week through August to November. In order to track their progress, Delaney will have a member of FMSC staff to sign off to confirm on the number of boxes packed per session and additionally include a photograph for each session of the attending members. The Feed My Starving Children Project is advancing the UN's Sustainable Development goals of No Poverty (1) and Zero Hunger (2). This project takes into consideration communities around the world who are primarily consisting of malnourished children, which is a common result of impoverished nations. In order to address this issue, the team would be supporting the initiative of Feed My Starving Children which, while providing protein-filled food packages, it also addresses the UNAI issues of poverty and lack of education by allowing communities to overcome the resulting obstacles of poverty with enough energy provided by food to attend resources of education. With enough generations of these underdeveloped nations properly fed, they will be able to finally pursue an education and contribute to their own communities and potentially other international communities as well.
