The world is hungry, but the emptiness goes far beyond the table. The need is physical and spiritual. People hunger for opportunity, starve for resources, and have been stripped of value. These injustices keep us up at night. IT’S NOT OK.

AND YET HOPE REMAINS.

At Food for the Hungry, we seek to end ALL forms of human poverty by going into the hard places and closely walking with the world’s most vulnerable people. We actively partner with churches, leaders, and families to build transformational relationships, usher justice, and renew communities so God’s purpose is revealed in each person we serve.

Our view of poverty is holistic and complex. Our solutions are innovative and community-specific. We courageously seek out the overlooked and advocate for the underserved. We’re unrelenting and we do what others claim can’t be done. We honor the people we serve by inviting them to contribute to the process. Through community-owned transformation we empower children, families and communities to invest in their own development. More than anything, we want to see people thrive. We are agents of change. We work, we feed, we teach, we love, but we know when it’s time to leave.

WE ARE ENDING POVERTY, TOGETHER.

For over four decades, we have been serving those who are living through unimaginable hardships. Today Food for the Hungry works in more than 20 countries around the world providing life-changing resources such as clean water, medical aid, food, education, vocational training, spiritual development, and hope.

Inspired and led by our Christian beliefs, we faithfully serve vulnerable people across the globe without regard to race, creed or nationality and without adverse distinction of any kind. We serve without stipulation or expectation and on the basis of need alone.  We strive to respect the culture and customs of the people we serve in order to preserve their humanity and dignity. We also proudly adhere to the Red Cross Code of Conduct, which can be found here
