Teacher Store

We believe education is the best way to help break the cycle of poverty. But without the proper tools for learning, students face overwhelming odds.

Because teachers are so passionate about ensuring their students’ success, many reach into their own pockets to provide educational materials, spending an average of $500 per year to provide students with the tools needed to succeed.

Feed the Children supports students by inviting teachers to shop for free classroom supplies and books at one of our five Teacher Store locations. These stores benefit more than 525,000 students across the country each school year.

“Over the past year, I've been able to add supplies to classroom stations that wouldn't have been possible without the Teacher Store. This year, our school started a library outside our front doors and we use the books from the Teacher Store to supply the library. There are so many ways to list how your organization has improved and benefited our children!"
- Yolanda K., Kindergarten Teacher in Oklahoma
