FlowMD Helps Battle Food Insecurity in Thailand, Packs More than 15,000 Meals
May 26, 2022
FlowMD, a unit of the IDEX Energy group, recently partnered with Feed My Starving Children (FMSC) in Phoenix, Arizona to help fight food insecurity.
Twelve employees from the Engineering, Marketing, Quality, Production, Field Service, Accounting, Shipping, and Purchasing departments hand-packed bags with rice, soy, dried vegetables and a nutritionally complete blend of vitamins and minerals. After filling bags with food, team members also sealed, boxed, and placed packages on pallets for shipping.
In less than two hours team members packed a total of 70 boxes, providing almost 15,000 meals for children in Thailand!
“This was our first off-site event as a company, but we hope to continue partnering with FMSC and other organizations to make a difference in communities in need,” Human Resources Generalist Carissa Gonzalez said.
Flow MD engineers and manufactures technically-differentiated “unidirectional captive displacement provers,” also called “small volume provers,” used in the custody transfer of petroleum products, particularly on pipelines. In a market where slight inaccuracies in flow meter measurements at transfer points can result in enormous payment discrepancies for customers, Flow MD’s calibration products serve a critical application.
Located near the FlowMD facility, Feed My Starving Children (FMSC) is a non-profit that provides nutritionally complete meals specifically formulated for malnourished children. Founded in 1987, FMSC helps ship essential foods through over 200 channels to orphanages, schools, clinics, and food programs across 70 countries.
