The event will take place May 29-31 in the Community Life Center of Five Oaks Church, 4416 Radio Drive, Woodbury.

FMSC is a non-profit Christian organization committed to feeding God's starving children hungry in body and spirit.
The approach is simple: children and adults hand pack meals designed specially for starving children and FMSC ships the meals to more than 60 countries around the world. Each meal costs only 17 cents to produce.
In 2008, FMSC sent 73.6 million meals around the world thanks to the work of more than 310,000 volunteers.
