Feed The Children Education Program

Feed The Children is committed to nourishing the minds and bodies of children in need across America. Since 1996, Feed The Children has partnered with educators to distribute books and supplies to boys and girls living in poverty - because if a child doesn't have food, they certainly don't have other basic necessities. Recognized by the U.S. Department of Education, our distribution programs have proven to be successful... the only thing missing is you.

Help Now »  How You Can Help  WIth your help, we can deliver even more assistance to a child in need and provide the essential tools for these children to succeed. This can be done through Gifts in Kind, cash donations, providing a backpack or school supplies for a child in need.

About Feed The Children
Since our founding in 1979, Feed The Children has become one of the nation's largest charities - dedicated to feeding the bodies and minds of hungry girls and boys to prepare them for healthy, successful lives.

Feed The Children makes a difference in the lives of at least 500,000 children in need per year in the U.S. with school supplies or children’s books.


In the event that excess funds are raised for a specific education focus, you can be confident in knowing the funds will be utilized in other areas of education to help break the cycle of poverty.
