Food for the Hungry (FH) is a Christian non-profit organization dedicated to ending poverty - one community at a time. With partners like you, we walk alongside the most vulnerable communities throughout the developing world as they strive toward sustainability. Recognizing that each community faces unique challenges as well as advantages, FH is committed to an integrated, holistic approach to development including priorities such as agriculture, education, health, and gender equality.
We’re different because we address the root issues of poverty. Sometimes people get stuck. A community can’t progress until its people understand what is holding them back. Everyone has God-given value and potential so we begin with changing how they see themselves and the world around them.
We’re different because this is community owned development. At the core of our activities is our belief in “walking with” rather than “doing for”. Community leaders are intentionally involved in the creation of grass roots solutions to poverty.
We’re different because we see the big picture. We don’t do just one thing. Ending poverty is complicated and it takes more than food or clean water for a community to thrive.
We’re different because we hire locally. Over 98% of the 3,000 FH staff members are citizens of the countries where they work. They’re from there; they get it.
We’re different because we leave. After about a decade, a community graduates and we transition from coaches to the sidelines. Since 1994, Canadians have helped 63 communities move from being stuck to self-sustaining. These communities are then in turn reaching out to their neighbours.
