Disaster Relief

Families everywhere want to make sure their kids have enough to eat, but hunger and food insecurity become more immediate threats when a natural disaster hits close to home. Feed the Children offers hope and help to families affected by disasters by providing immediate aid through our vast network of community partners. Throughout our history, we have responded to hundreds of disasters and distributed millions of dollars in food and essentials to those in impacted areas, throughout our history.

Every year, American teachers spend a significant amount of their own money on necessities for their classrooms as well as school supplies for students whose families cannot afford them. Stocked with a variety of scholastic products donated by our corporate partners, our five Teacher Store locations across the U.S. are designed to ease this burden on teachers by providing them with classroom resources, school supplies, books and even snacks for their students from our onsite food pantries at absolutely no cost to them.
