Mission Statement

To walk with churches, leaders and families in overcoming all forms of human poverty by living in healthy relationship with God and His creation.


Food for the Hungry (FH) is a Christian organization serving the poor globally since 1971. We reflect the love of Christ in short-term emergency relief and long-term community developement to end world hungry.

FH focuses on helping children and suffering communities. We support churches, leaders and families in caring for children. As communities grow spiritually, economically, and in healthy practices, children grow up with hope for their future.

Our programs are designed with input from the poor. Our experts respectfully bring new practices in agriculture, health, child development and more to impoverished communities. The result is innovation and long-lasting relationships.

More than 90 percent of the 2,000 FH staff members are citizens of the 23 countries we serve around the world. We partner with the poor and respect their culture.

I found this organization to be very volunteer friendly. They are so good with their short term mission teams and I love the long term staff that they have. They are well planned out trips and are very attentive to their teams.
