Food for the Hungry seeks to end all forms of human poverty by going to the hard places and walking with the world’s most vulnerable people.

 

We’ve been serving through purposeful development and relief for over four decades. We believe in the fight against poverty, which is why we serve the vulnerable in over 20 countries globally. We’re moved and inspired by our Christian belief that every person has intrinsic value and that it is our responsibility to advocate for the poor and marginalised without regard to race, creed or nationality and without adverse distinction of any kind. We serve 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 provide life-changing resources such as clean water, medical aid, food, equal education opportunities to both girls and boys and vocational training in the midst of unimaginable hardships. Our view of poverty is holistic and complex. We honour the people by inviting them to contribute to the process. We are grateful to be invited into the communities we serve, and work side by side with local leaders – responding to their needs with transformative solutions, which are both sustainable and implemented at the hands of the communities themselves.
