I have a shelter located in South Central LA. Feed the Children has donated supplies and food to our organization (watchitgrow inc.) every month. South Central LA is has alot of people who are homeless, suffer from addiction and are low income. Feed the Children is a god sent to many who consider themselve as hopeless, so it excites us every week to give donations and see HOPE!

Feed The Children has allowed us to reach out not only to our local community but to the entire western half of Illinois. They supply us with good useable food and and non-food products that we distribute to over 200 agencies per month. With out their support we would fall way short of product and would not be able to help feed the thousands of people each month we service.

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

Move them closer so we could reduce our freight costs.

Feed the children has been a tremendous asset to our organization. We have been blessed to receive goods that allow us to make sure that the clients we serve our afforded quality products and services. In an effort to serve our community, resources are often limited, but through th endeavors of Feed The Children, we have met our mark each time.

It is with great pride and admoration that I recall our largest event to date, in collaboration with Feed the Children, Essence of hope was able to feed 400 families. It was a landmark event for our community. People from off of the streets & other homeless situations, are still asking us about that day.

Kudos to a great partnership & an even greater organization!

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

Allow their partners to help out a bit more. They do so much, I am sure that they could use the help.

Feed the Children has been a huge blessing to so many for years, but they have made a tremendous impact here in the Dallas / Fort Worth Area in so many ways! Their heart to serve and to give is second to none, but their collaboration is priceless. We have had the privilge to not only work with them on projects that bring resources to our community, but to see the team work and collaboration between corporate America, other non-profits and our faith-based community is inspiring and challenging. To be as large as they are, but to understand that it takes a "village" to meet the needs of the village is strategic. It comes down to people, serving people and meeting needs. Whether procurement, logistics, distribution or loving on people, its all about people. Feed the Childen has blessed and modeled servant leadership to the Fortune 500 and to the least of these.

Feed the children continues to resource our ministry to the underprivileged at Wiley Post Park in downtown Oklahoma City where we serve a hot meal each week to approximately 80 to 100 people. I have also seen how Feed the Children has responded to the tornado relief. I appreciate their partnership with other agencies including our church to provide resources for the people who have suffered so much.

Over the past 3 years Feed the Children has provided food assistance to well over 2700 needed families in Northeast Florida. Often time’s families come to our agency activities where we provide a light snack. The sad thing is that we know that snack for some is the only meal they have had or will have for that day. Feed The Children has given so very many families in our area needed food to smile about. Families that are homeless living in their cars, mothers pregnant with other children and no way to feed them, children that are grateful to know that they will eat when they see the beautiful red Feed The Children semi truck parked to give them needed food. Our agency is truly grateful for the partnership with Feed the Children. It has been one of the greatest partnerships that have provided so much for the families in need in our community.
Thank You Feed The Children -- Thank YOU!

Feed The Children has provided school supplies, backpacks and books to our school district's McKinney Project which serves children and their families who have experienced a loss of housing. Parents have commented that the items have been of great help to them as they struggle financially. Our program is able to assist more students through the support of Feed The Children. Items are distributed along with other resource information to families directly or they are sent to school Social Workers or Counselors and/or shelters. Feed The Children has been a welcomed and terrific partner.
