Ministry Description
Founded in 1971, Food for the Hungry is an international relief and development organization that answers God's call to walk with churches, leaders and families in overcoming all forms of human poverty - physical and spiritual. This philosophy makes Food for the Hungry uniquely effective with its comprehensive programs, including: child sponsorship, emergency relief and rehabilitation, community clean-water projects, church development, pastoral training, health education and intervention, agriculture development, income generation, life-skills training and education. Only 10% of donations are allocated to administrative and fundraising costs, with 90% of total income allocated to programs in developing communities around the world.

Donate to Food for the Hungry as we assist children in impoverished communities who have lost one or both parents. This makes children vulnerable to hunger, disease and abuse. Many live with elderly grandparents with no income source, or with other relatives. FH makes sure the children's basic daily needs are met, and also helps the children continue their education. Additionally, FH teaches children that Jesus loves them and will not abandon them.
