Feed the Children play a vital role in partnering with Wings of Faith to help serve a “third world nation”, The Native American Indian. Because of the generous donations of goods we receive from Feed the Children we are better enabled to provide badly needed supplies to the impoverished Native Americans that live in remote high mountain desert areas of the Southwest. This wonderful organization donated school supplies that we handed out to very poor Native Children on the reservations. Without this wonderful giving these tiny scholars would have gone to school missing the barest essentials…notebook paper and binders. The Indian schools on the reservation also give special thanks for your support.

I can’t speak highly enough about the staff. The people that we work with at Feed the Children are joyfully committed, very helpful, and extremely well organized. I rate this organization five stars.

Feed the Children is a great asset to Wings of Faith. We are grateful for the generous giving and I look forward to continuing our partnership.

Feed The Children is an outstanding non profit organization that helps other organization like us to grow. Through their generous donations of food and numerous gift in kinds we were able to upgrade from ordinary food pantry to a major free food distributor to other food pantries and other organization that cater for the needy in New Jersey and New York . Everyday I pray for them. My God will continue to bless FTC and their workers and prosper them as they continue to help other organization grow from minimum to maximum in Jesus name.

miracles ground intercessory prayer Homeless and prison ministry inc. is an organization that is committed to helping the poor and the needy. Through feed the children we are able to fulfil our mission. Their generous donation is amazing. we get truck loads of different kinds of items like juice, can goods, cream/lotion, clothes, water, medical supplies, furniture, office supplies, books, toiletries etc. without charging us like other agencies. feed the children has been a blessing to us. sometimes we give out cases of juice and energy bar to indvidual families. As a result we are able to meet the needs of more than 2,500 famillies/week. Our agency is now the best and the largest food pantry in Newark, NJ because we give out more products. May the God Almighty continue to strengten feed the children and reward them for the good work they are doing.

assist client-served financially. It has been extremely difficult for us to fund our program in terms of transportation and warehouse. I wish we can get financial assistance from the feed the children. or help us to get grant. we have been struggling to get grant to run the program without result. And unless somebody help us the struggle continues. pls help us. we are sinking in debt

We are a shelter facility that houses women and children in crisis. Without the help of Feed the Children our ability to provide all of their individual needs would be greatly impaired. We have received many items in our 12 years of operation directly from them that have saved us considerable costs. They have consistently provided different products to assist us in meeting the needs of approximately 2,000 women in that time. We are extremely appreciative of their work and wish there was more we could do to support them.

My name is Christopher Adebayo, When we started our food program, NO organization was will to take us as first timer, when we applied to FTC program, they helped us to start from the scratched. They provided us with all the help we needed to start. Today we are one of many in the Bronx NY. that benefit from the generousity of FTC. We have both logistic and moral encouragement to do what we love to do. FTC, we are grateful to God for you and all your staffs. Thanks in millions.

Warehouse of Hope has been extremely blessed thanks to Feed the Children. Without Feed the Children we wouldn't be able to serve the 1,000+ needy families that come to us weekly for assistance.The last 3 years, because of the economy, more and more people are needing assistance with the basic necessities. Because of Feed the Children we are able to provide this and much more to these families. Thanks so much for what you do.

Feed the Children is one of the most important and valued assets to the thousands of non-profit organizations they serve, including Victory Christian Childrens Ministries / Operation: Feed - A - Child which serves more than 5000 children in need on a weekly basis. Feed the Children is one of the greatest blessings any benevolent organization could ever ask for. They are professional in all their dealings and are very above board with all their recipients as well as their donors. We are very proud to be a recipient of Feed the Children supplies and food donations and are very very impressed with the accounting of all donations that they distribute to their various agencies. Feed the Children is indeed one of the finest charities in America and their professionalism is unsurpassed as far as I am concerned.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

I recall so many times when our agency was almost out of food to supply to the over 5000 children who rely on us each week. I often contact Feed the Children to explain our situation and they get right to work seeking donors to supply us with kid friendly food products. I have always been able to count on Feed the Children to do all they can to actually Feed the Children in Western North Carolina.

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

I could not imagine any changes that need to be made at Feed the Children.
