Giving back and making a difference has always been important to Marisa China & Gunnar Hammerbeck. Having traveled around the world, backpack style, Marisa & Gunnar saw poverty and hunger first hand and became committed to helping those in need.

There's nothing more important than basic nutrition in dealing with life's challenges.

Without it you can't focus on improving your and your family's lives. In 2011 they came across Feed My Starving Children (FMSC). FMSC uses donations and volunteers to hand-pack meals specifically formulated for malnourished children and adults.

These meals have reached more than 70 countries and they've shipped out over 2 billion meals since 2009. With their great organizational efforts and passionate volunteers they are truly saving and changing lives. FMSC consistently receives the highest awards for integrity and trustworthiness, with more than 91 percent of total donations dedicated directly toward feeding kids in need..

A severely malnourished child can become a well-nourished child in a matter of months by one of these scientifically developed and easy-to-prepare food blends.We have been committed to providing a minimum of 35,000 meals annually in the past, but we are excited to dramatically increase that number, with your help, and our new commitment of at least 1 meal for every bag purchased! Just think.... when you purchase a PortoVino, you can feel great about your purchase because you aren't only getting an amazing new bag, but you are making a difference in the lives of those in need.Thank you for your purchase. We are so grateful for your help!
