Did you know that in 2015, roughly 13% of U.S. households were food insecure throughout the year?
Established in 1979, Feed the Children exists to combat and eventually eradicate childhood hunger in the U.S. and abroad. It is one of the largest U.S.-based charities and serves those in need in the U.S. and in 10 countries around the world. Feed the Children provides food, education, essentials and disaster response for those in need. Domestically, they operate five distribution centers located in Oklahoma, Indiana, California, Tennessee and Pennsylvania.
Through its domestic and international programs during fiscal year 2016, Feed the Children distributed 105 million pounds of food and essentials worldwide with a total value of $415 million, working with partner agencies to benefit 5.9 million people globally. It is accredited by GuideStar Exchange and the BBB Wise Giving Alliance.
“Having three sons, my heart breaks for the more than six million kids who live in food-insecure households,” said Jim Goldberg, founder and CEO of Deep River Snacks. “That’s why I’m incredibly passionate about supporting Feed the Children and all they are doing to defeat hunger.”
Together, with Feed the Children, we hope to end childhood hunger.
- Challenge convention: we believe that a future without hungry children is possible.
- Defend dignity: we believe in treating each child and family in the communities where we work with value and worth.
- Champion partnership: we believe collaboration is the only way to end childhood hunger.
- Value every donor: we believe in donors playing an active role in ending childhood hunger.
- Drive accountability: we believe in making changes when something isn’t working and building on the success when it is.
