OUR WORK

Feed the Children is dedicated to ending childhood hunger both at home and abroad

At A Glance

In collaboration with our family of corporate and community partners, donors and volunteers, our work benefited 6.3 million people globally this past year. That’s nearly the total populations of Los Angeles and Houston combined, or just under 90 times the number of people who attended the Super Bowl last year.

In the United States, we distributed more than 68.6 million pounds of food and essential items to children and families who needed them. Our total outreach benefited 4.7 million people in the communities where they live—including areas struck by natural disasters last year such as hurricanes, floods, tornadoes and wildfires where we distributed millions of pounds of food and supplies.

Internationally, our work reached a total of 1.6 million people throughout the 10 countries where we are active as we provided more than 9.4 million pounds of food and essential items valued at $31 million. Our beneficiaries included 624,470 children and caregivers impacted by our health and water programming.

To support education initiatives, we provided more than $4.7 million worth of teaching supplies across the U.S. as well as books valued at $7.6 million that could benefit approximately 809,000 students across 458 school districts. Internationally, our work secured school supplies and books for 17,821 students and provided 228,450 school-age children with regular, nutritious school meals.

Summer Feeding Program

Feed the Children’s summer feeding program is designed to help bridge the gap for kids who rely on school breakfasts and lunches when school is not in session. We are working with community partners to make sure food reaches hungry families by delivering meals door-to-door or through curbside pickup distribution. The program will continue to serve families and children throughout the summer with the help of community partners who are looking for innovative ways to defeat hunger.
