Feed the Children deserves five stars for understanding the benefits of a partnership with the school district homeless liaisons to have a far reaching impact with limited resources. In 2013 alone, the truck delivered 232 boxes of books and 2,080 backpacks filled with basic need items and school supplies to Sacramento County. In addition, the school districts throughout the state receive boxes of supplies in the mail each year. When I began sponsoring a child in Ethiopia in 1980, I didn’t know that I would subsequently see so many children right in my own community benefit from the same organization. These humble, caring and dedicated people help us alleviate the pain of homelessness.

Feed The Children has been providing food, vitiams, and other househeld item to our church for a number of years. Our church has a large community outreach food program and wouldn't be able to feed the families in need without their generous donations. Feed the Children is a wonderful organization partnering with other to help end hunger.

Over the years Feed the Children has given Metro Kidz International truck loads of candy, chocolate, drinks, books, toys, cleaning supplies, baby items and more! We've been able to bless 1000s of inner-city children and their families with these items, which have also helped keep our ministry going! Thank you Feed the Children for your dedication to serving needy children and families all over the US and the world!

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

allow organizations to request items they need instead of waiting for an email of available items every month.

Feed the children has been a great asset to our organization. They have allowed us to reach out and not only service the homeless at Making A Way Housing, but the underserved in the community. We collaborate with many different agencies, and feed the children ALWAYS responds to the clarion call consistently. We are blessed to have them assist us in helping the needy!

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

Encourage donors to donate more!

Feed The Children is a great organization that has been helping the Appalachian area and the Christian Appalachian Project Operation Sharing for over twenty years. They provide food, clothing, water, and various other needed supplies of all types that help the people of Appalachia. If it were not for the support of Feed The Children many children, families, and elderly people would go hungry each night in the Appalachian area. Also, Feed The Children is very supportive to the Appalachian area during times of disaster. Over the last ten years we have received numerous truckloads of water, food, and supplies to help the people to get back on their feet.
We are very thankful for Feed The Children and the work that they do to help the people of the Appalachian area and we are proud to be a partner with this top rated organization.

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

I would continue the great work that they are doing and I would not change anything.

Feed the Children has been partnering with the Pennsylvania Department of Education through Feed the Children’s Homeless Education & Literacy Program since 2007. Feed the Children has distributed backpacks, children’s books, school supplies, and snack food components to Pennsylvania’s children experiencing homelessness since then.

Feed the Children delivered the first tractor-trailer load of backpacks, books, school supplies, and snack food components to Philadelphia. Since then, Feed the Children has been delivering backpacks, books, school supplies, and snack food components to Pittsburgh, Reading, Lancaster, Grove City, Erie, Indiana, State College, Allentown, and Bethlehem Pennsylvania.

The joy, happiness, and a sense of belonging, that a child experiencing homelessness gets by having his or her own backpack and school supplies, allows them to “fit in” and be on equal ground like their peers. Records show that more than 21,000 backpacks have been delivered to Pennsylvania’s children experiencing homelessness and we are currently working with school districts for a fall delivery as our partnership with Feed the Children will continue.

For years Feed The Children has contributed tremendously to the goals of Bethesda Mission's Outreach Ministry to alleviate hunger in the rural areas of Central Pennsylvania. Every month Bethesda Mission's Outreach Ministry distributes over 1,500 food bags to food pantries and churches in the neighboring counties of Harrisburg, PA, in addition to providing bulk food donations on an as needed basis to local non-profits that share our goals . The number of lives that our Outreach Ministry is able to touch would be significantly less without the constant grace and goodwill of the food donations we receive from Feed The Children. Their charity has not only helped to grow the number of people that we serve, but has helped us improve the quality and nutritional content of the food items that go into each of our bags. We are blessed to be in partnership with this organization.
