In January I met the President of Feed the World, Mike Bumstead, and Jana Bryant. They shared photos and videos to demonstrate the lives they've touched by their work in Peru, Kenya, and Ecuador. I've also spoken with their CTO, Alan Silva and can tell you the leadership team is innovative and closely connected to the people they serve. My daughter is excited to join a youth expedition to Peru this summer and our family wants to sponsor a family to help them grow nutritious food and raise small animals to provide for their needs. As Feed the World expands, it makes sustainable differences in the lives of the people who are excited to learn and develop the skills they need for a healthy and prosperous future.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

I would like to see Feed the World do more crowd funding to spread the amazing results they are having and let more people donate small amounts to help small communities reach their goals.

I was contacted by SRA to help contribute to their cause with my expertise. I traveled to their operations and met with their people. I can honestly say that I rarely seen such a dedicated group of people. The in country staff really love the people they work with. Not only that, but I saw a true impact in the families they were working. Malnutrition is being eliminated and families are emerging from poverty! It is amazing what these people are doing.
