Become a Feed The Children Partner Agency to Begin Receiving Food to Distribute



Partner agency information

Feed The Children distributes food and personal care items to children and families in need in all 50 states. To do this efficiently, we work with a network of thousands of partner agencies in communities across the country. Our partner agencies include food pantries, shelters, soup kitchens and churches. These agencies then deliver our donated products—free of charge—to families in need in the U.S.

Why this way?

Rather than reinvent the wheel by trying to build food pantries all across the country, we work through reputable partner agencies already at work in their communities.
