Thomas Allen Disselkamp leverages more than three decades of experience in electrical and optical engineering to serve as a product development specialist at 3M Company in Minnesota. On top of his professional endeavors, Thomas Disselkamp, or Tom Disselkamp, supports a number of nonprofit organizations, including Feed My Starving Children (FMSC).

In March of 2016, FMSC announced that it has been providing meals to children on the island of Tanna ever since the island was hit by Cyclone Pam in March 2015. Many of the villagers on Tanna are subsistence farmers whose crops were destroyed by the cyclone and further obstructed by lingering drought conditions. For the past year, FSMC has been working with the Christadelphian Bethezer Fund to provide 330 students at the Kapalpal School with nutritious meals every school day.

Along with meals for school children on Tanna, FMCS has supported the health and well-being of younger children on the island by delivering Potato-W meals, which are specially formulated meals designed to meet the nutrient requirements of babies and very young children.

Headquartered in Coon Rapids, Minnesota, Feed My Starving Children (FMSC) is a nonprofit organization that works to provide food to children in need. FMSC relies heavily on support and contributions from groups of generous volunteers like Tom Disselkamp, who help pack meals at FMSC locations around the country, including in Minnesota and Illinois. Volunteering with the organization is ideal for larger groups from schools and churches as volunteer shifts are short and simple enough for children as young as five years old. Younger volunteers learn values like citizenship, social service, and community building, while older volunteers benefit from the good feeling of providing a meaningful service to the less fortunate.
