Feed The Children is a Christian, international, nonprofit relief organization with headquarters in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, that delivers food, medicine, clothing and other necessities to children and families who lack these essentials due to famine, war, poverty or natural disaster.

Programs

U.S. Programs

Feed The Children distributes food to families in to need across the United States. To do this, we work closely with caring corporate partners that donate surplus food and other supplies, as well as with individual donors who help defray the cost of transporting the product donations.

Feed The Children has a wholly-owned subsidiary, FTC Transportation, Inc., that picks up in-kind contributions from corporate warehouses and brings them to one of five Feed The Children regional distribution centers. Some of the donations are then distributed in bulk and others are processed into individual relief boxes.

The supplies and boxes are then delivered to pre-approved, independent partner agencies that, in turn, distribute the supplies through our extensive network of feeding centers, homeless shelters, churches and various other organizations located in communities across the U.S. Individuals and groups can also sponsor a food distribution, during which boxes are given directly to families in need.

Through the generosity of committed partners, Feed The Children delivers much needed necessities to children and their families every day. As always, Feed The Children provides help to those in need absolutely free of charge. Find out how you can take a stand against hunger in the U.S.

International Outreach

Feed The Children's international programs focus on providing food, medical assistance, emergency relief, and creating sustainable development.

Since 1979, we have provided food, clothing, medical assistance, and educational opportunities to those in need in more than 119 nations around the world. Through schools, orphanages and church-related programs, Feed The Children touches the lives of millions of children. We also provide assistance to orphanages, schools, and other charitable groups in these regions.

A key goal is to help families in need move past needing help and into becoming self-sufficient members of their community. Through long-term, self-help development programs funded by grants and individual donors, thousands of families in countries around the world have increased their ability to be self-sufficient by learning and applying new, marketable skills.

News & Events

July 22, 2009 - Feed The Children recently announced its support of United We Serve, a national effort launched by President Obama aimed to engage more Americans in serving their communities throughout the summer.

United We Serve kicked off on June 22 and runs through Sept. 11, which will be marked for the first time as a national day of service and remembrance. The initiative focuses on four key areas: education; health; energy and the environment; and community renewal. It is being led by the Corporation for National and Community Service, a federal agency that improves lives and strengthens communities though volunteering and service.

Feed The Children has posted volunteer opportunities at each of our five distribution centers (Oklahoma City, OK; Nashville, TN; Ontario, CA; North Brunswick, NJ and Elkhart, IN) on the Serve.gov web site. The site allows visitors to type in their zip code to find local volunteer opportunities, recruit volunteers by posting their organization's projects, or get ideas for creating their own projects with friends, families, and neighbors. Simply enter your location and search for Feed The Children.

"This summer, I'm calling on all of you to make volunteerism and community service part of your daily life and the life of this nation," said President Obama in the video announcing United We Serve. "Economic recovery is as much about what you're doing in your communities as what we're doing in Washington -- and it's going to take all of us, working together."
