Feed The Children



Thank you for your interest in volunteering with Feed The Children Houston! Read below for a little more information regarding our volunteer program and how to get started.

Why do we need volunteers?

Feed The Children, is a non profit organization based out of Oklahoma City, Oklahoma. Our mission is to help 'provide hope and resources to those with out life’s essentials.’

We strive to assist families all across the United States, who are currently having a rough time, due to the low economy, sudden job loss, or have unfortunately been affected by a natural disaster. We do this by partnering with various agency's, churches and corporate companies who distribute these goods to their local community.

Every family we help receives a Food Box which is filled with various canned goods and non perishable food items and a Personal Care/Hygiene Box filled with every day essentials, such as toiletries, oral care products, soaps, etc. Along with these two boxes, with our great partnership with AVON; families also receive a small box, which we like to call our emotional box which has a variety of AVON brand products, such as perfumes, make up, jewelry, clothing, etc. These items help provide a little extra to uplift everyone’s spirit.

In order to provide families with these neatly packed boxes, we rely on volunteers to assist us with a variety of different behind the scene tasks that aide in packing neat, plentiful filled boxes to these deserving families. Depending on our needs for that week/day, these tasks include but are not limited to:

Packing various canned goods and/or hygiene products into boxes on an assembly line

Make boxes for future packing

Sort through donated books for any deemed inappropriate for school aged kids

Prep products for easy packing by removing any plastic or excess cardboard.

Our group volunteers weekly at Feed The Children. They are very organized and always engages our volunteers appropriately and keeps them busy. Their process is simple but effective and each one of our volunteers knows the impact they are making in children's lives. This organization is very flexible and easy to work within your own schedule.
