Hunger Can Affect Anyone, So We’re Here for Everyone

Hunger is widespread, even here in America – but so are we. You'll find boxes proudly marked with the Feed the Children logo being distributed by our community partners in nearly every state in the U.S. We work where the need is greatest, whether due to disaster or sudden or chronic economic distress.

In addition to food distribution, you’ll find us supporting:

  • Food banks and food pantries
  • School meal programs
  • Veterans’ programs and homeless support centers

Internationally, we manage child-focused community development programs that focus on reducing hunger and malnutrition, teaching health and promoting self-reliance in 8 countries in Asia, Africa, and Latin America.
