Starting Friday night and running through Tuesday, MicroTech is among 2,000 volunteers that are taking on the challenge of packaging over half a million meals for starving children around the world. The annual charity event is hosted by New Hope Church in Lorton VA and run by the Feed My Starving Children (FMSC) organization. This is the fourth consecutive year MicroTech has participated.  FMSC is a Christian non-profit charity founded in 1987 that has become the largest supplier of nutritionally complete, packaged dry meals for the world’s hungry. FMSC distributes food to nearly 70 countries around the world.   Every day FMSC produces enough food for 420,000 children.  Each meal costs less than a quarter to make and 92% of total donations supports the food program.  Last year, the New Hope effort provided over 250,000 meals for children and this year more than doubled their goal.  Paul Price, MicroTech’s Chief Administrative Officer (CAO), and his wife, Traci, were among those serving on the first packing team this year; Price explained, “This group effort epitomizes so many of MicroTech’s core values: People, Teamwork, Collaboration, and Innovation. It’s a privilege to be a part of such a worthwhile undertaking each year”.
