Program areas at Feed the Children

Food and personal essentials:in the united states, Feed the Children supplements basic needs of Children and families with food and other basic necessities. Feed the Children partners with over 1,200 local agencies, including food pantries, churches, and soup kitchens, distributing food and other essentials to help families nationwide. No child or family is ever charged for the food, supplies and assistance they receive.
Education and community support: domestically, to empower the well-being of Children and their families lacking life's essentials, Feed the Children delivers backpacks filled with school supplies, age appropriate books and personal hygiene items, to homeless students enrolled in public schools, helping to provide a sense of normalcy for these Children. To date, Feed the Children has distributed more than 1 million backpacks. Additionally, Children across the country receive school supplies or Children's books each year through education-focused projects. Feed the Children's teacher's store program provides much-needed school supplies and resources to teachers, free of charge.
Disaster response: Feed the Children is able to swiftly respond in times of disaster due to its dedicated fleet of semi-tractor trailers, and it works with its network of agency partners to provide emergency essentials to victims of natural and man-made disasters, including badly needed supplies of non-perishable food items, basic essentials (hygiene and toiletries items), water, cleaning supplies, as well as books and school supplies.
