  •  Kids Against Hunger
     
    Last May the students, parents and staff of FMG took part in the 3rd annual Kids Against Hunger Day.  By raising over $8,000 we were able to donate approximately 35,640 healthy and complete meals to needy families in Central America.  Students learned how to precisely package all the ingredients, connecting their donation to the actual food that was going to help save lives.
