Feed The Children, Inc.
June 26, 2013

Feed the Children is an exceptional organization that has been able to make a significant impact in the lives of thousands of children by partnering intelligently with effective direct-service organizations in every part of the country that care for needy kids. As Chief Production Officer for one such organization (The River Fund New York) based in New York City’s largest borough, I have direct interaction with key operatives at Feed the Children on a regular basis.

The level of professionalism and expertise that these individuals bring to the table allows Feed the Children to define and implement the most effective use of available resources. As a team, Feed the Children develops smart programs to support direct-service organizations—and then aggressively goes into the market to find the appropriate corporate and foundation support to make those programs work.

Operating since 21 years, The River Fund New York has been a partner with Feed the Children for a long time and we have always enjoyed working with them. However, our appreciation for the organization grew even deeper with the tremendous support we received during the immediate aftermath of Superstorm Sandy. As the very first Emergency Food Program to get into the Flood Zones behind the storm, we at The River Fund needed all the help we could get. Feed the Children was quick to respond to some of the special needs of the situation: Not only did they make large quantities of food available, they also channeled substantial quantities of cleaning supplies to us—which were desperately needed for distribution to families whose homes were inundated by muddy flood waters.

Of course, our work in the Sandy Flood Zones continues—since thousands of families and seniors who were already struggling before the storm still require our ongoing support. Feed the Children continues to be an outstanding partner with us, and calls on us regularly with ideas and ways of assisting us to deliver more help to those in need. The relationship we have established with Feed the Children is a major source of encouragement to us as we continue in our Mission “to feed and empower those we serve to move beyond the lines of poverty.”

Thank you very much for the opportunity to endorse this outstanding organization.
