About Us

Feed the Children exists to fight childhood hunger. It’s the cause upon which we were founded over 40 years ago and the one that we continue to fight for each day.

It takes donors who believe in the cause, experts to diagnose the problem and innovate solutions, organizations to pool their resources and expertise, and communities to work together for change.

We are taking a stand and we will not rest until every child has enough to eat.
