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!

I would use caution with this organization, since the founders, Larry and Frances Jones were fired during a hostile takeover,(family member creating situation) Nov 2009. They have done a wonderful job for many years and I, for one, thank them.

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

many areas; USA, ABC Nursey, and Africa.

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

demand a new board be put into place.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

Larry and Frances Jones were able to relate to those in dire needs without making them feel badly.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

professional.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

create more feeding stations in Africa, tend more aids children at ABC Nursey, and help USA Food Banks.

Ways to make it better...

the board would have worked out any problems keeping Larry and Frances Jones.

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

lack of communication.

One thing I'd also say is that...

the organization has done so much good since its' creation, it would be a pity to see it lose now.

Feed The Children (FTC Canada) is my No. 1 cause, and has been since I came upon it more than a year ago... all donations go towards feeding the hungry around the world and at home, wherever it is needed... We live in a world of abundance... there is no excuse for anyone to go hungry in this world of ours... ESPECIALLY CHILDREN... Give a little, give a lot... children everywhere ARE our future!!!

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

... the letters I receive each month, and the stories of children & their families around this big world of ours... who receive help and go on to have better, healthier, happier lives!

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

...make a LOT of bellies happy... ESPECIALLY CHILDREN!!!
