The Vivint Smart Home Team

Vivint Gives Back hosted the 6th annual Feed My Starving Children event, and over 1,000 Vivint Smart Home employees, friends, and family members came together to pack life-saving meals.

In 2010 Vivint partnered with Feed My Starving Children, a non-profit organization that prepares and distributes meals to children with physical and intellectual disabilities living in poverty all over the world. The meals consist of rice, soy, vegetables, vitamins, and minerals to satisfy the nutritional needs of these children. They are packed by an assembly line of volunteers and then boxed to be shipped around the world. The food that Vivint employees packed went directly to schools, orphanages, and families that have children with special needs.

This year, the Vivint team hand packed 272,160 meals in only three days! That is enough to feed 764 children a meal a day for an entire year. Over the last six years,  Vivint has packed a total of  1.3 million meals feeding over 3,500 children.

Thanks to all the Vivint employees, friends, and family members who came out to make a difference in the lives of children all around the globe!
