OUR MISSION

Providing hope and resources for
those without life's essentials.

Our Story

Established over 40 years ago, Feed the Children is one of the leading anti-hunger organizations.

We dare to envision a world where no child goes to bed hungry. To help create that world, we are dedicated to helping families and communities achieve stable lives and to reducing the need for help tomorrow—all while providing food and assistance to help them today.

In the Unites States we distribute product donations of food and other items from corporate donors through our network of local community partners, we provide classroom support and school supplies to students in vulnerable areas, and we mobilize resources quickly to aid recovery efforts when natural disasters strike.

Internationally, we manage child-focused community development programs that focus on reducing hunger and malnutrition, teaching health and promoting self-reliance in 10 countries in Asia, Africa, Latin American and the Caribbean.

We welcome partnerships because we know that our work would not be possible without collaborative relationships. We seek to connect donors, partners, experts, volunteers, leaders and communities to raise awareness about childhood hunger and make it a thing of the past. That’s something we can only do together.

OUR VISION

Create a world where no child
goes to bed hungry.

STRATEGIC PLAN

Strategy for Children

Strategic Vision

Feed the Children stands ready to help – near and far. From an international child who needs a nourishing meal and school supplies, to grandparents who are raising their grandchildren on a fixed income, or a U.S. military family trying to make ends meet while a parent is deployed, we are unwavering in our dedication to helping our neighbors and building caring communities.

As we embark on the next five years in our history, we are inspired, and we remain committed to doing our part to create a world where no child goes to bed hungry.
