We start with the basics so we can build relationships and focus on the essentials.

In 2023, we were blessed to provide 19,580,059 meals to children and individuals. We are constantly developing new methods to meet the urgent needs of hungry children and individuals, which allows us to provide hope and develop relationships that open the door to making an eternal impact. We are counting on you to help us help one more child domestically and globally because no one should go to bed hungry.

We're feeding children locally and globally.

Backpack Meals Program

Our Backpack Meals Program ensures children in local schools and their families do not go hungry during the weekend. We pack nutritious food into nondescript backpacks and deliver them to schools to get them in the hands of kids who need them most.

Compassion Ministries

We provide fresh produce, boxed goods, canned goods, milk, juice and more to working-class individuals and families who need assistance to ensure their children are fed healthy, energizing food.

Global Feeding Programs

In Africa, Asia, Europe and Central America we provided millions of meals to children. We are always looking to grow that number by feeding more children at our existing ministry sites and evaluating other potential partners who can help us get life-changing food to hungry children and their families.

Child Sponsorship

Through child sponsorship we provide life-changing food to children and in many countries we also provide monthly food baskets to help feed their families! Sponsor a child today to personally ensure they have food on their table, as well as many other needs met.

Summer Programs

Through Summer Breakspot and other educational programs we provide meals to children each summer.

Help Fight Child Hunger – Start Today

Check out several of the simple, yet extremely high-impact ways that you can partner with us to start feeding hungry children and individuals today.

In the United States, 12.5% of households with children are food insecure.*

Worldwide, an estimated 45 million children under the age of five were suffering from wasting, the deadliest form of malnutrition, which increases children’s risk of death by up to 12 times.**

*According to the USDA Key Statistics, 2021.
**According to the UN Global Hunger Report, 2021.
