Mission: We feed orphans and other needy children and their families by collecting surplus and donated food, recruiting volunteers to distribute, and organizing outreach to the least among us.
Results: Our mission has served literally millions of meals to kids who would otherwise go to bed hungry. Thousands of young mothers have learned about nutrition, sanitation, and the word of God through the efforts of our volunteers.
Target demographics: We serve orphaned children, children of migrant indigenous workers, children from high-risk homes and other needy kids who live in Mexico near our California homes.
Direct beneficiaries per year: We have served more than 4,000 needy kids and their families during the past year.
Hilarious Givers is such a blessing to those of us who serve the needs in Mexico. When I first started my organization and began researching resources for Mexico it was very discouraging. It was easy to get things that were being thrown away anyway. But impossible to get donations from local food banks because of policies that require all donated food to remain in the US. One of the most exciting comments I stumbled upon when reading about HIlarious Giver's was their policy that stated; "food collected must be distributed in Mexico - no exceptions". It was such a blessing to discover. And then after meeting the directors Judd and Debra, now my friends and partners in the mission, it sealed the deal. They have the biggest hearts and are so faithful seeing that resources are consistently stewarded on both sides of the border. God loves a cheerful and hilarious giver!
