We support this ministry and believe strongly in their mission to feed hungry children and provide support for foster parents and those wishing to adopt. We have participated in several food packs at the Hope Factory; it's such an exciting experience. Larry Bergeron, founder and director, certainly puts his heart and soul into this work.

My family and I LOVE to help with Hands Against Hunger, packaging meals that are shipped all over the world and USA. I appreciate how well organized it is, whether you're a first-timer or a "regular", there is always a friendly person to help with any questions. But truly, it's such a great experience every time because it is such a well-run organization! They have great info, great presentations that explain everything! You can watch a demo of their water purification system and even taste a sample of the food that is shipped! Something the whole family can do together as well as something any aged group can do and know they are making a powerful difference! I come away feeling inspired every time! I highly recommend anyone to participate.

We love working with A Child's Hope International at their factory to pack meals for kids around the globe and cannot believe how much of our donations go to these meals. The entire organization is stellar from its mission to its leadership to the volunteers who dedicate their time and talents to it. I am proud to donate a portion of revenue from every single sale my small business makes to support them!

We first volunteered at Child's Hope with our church. I loved it so much, that when my son brought his new girlfriend to meet us, we met them at "the factory" and volunteered together. My husband and I have supported this organization, financially and physically, and will continue to do so!

I am drawn to the heart and purpose of this ministry, as lived out by its leader, Larry Bergeron and staff. Specifically, they concern themselves with the warmth and truth of God's concern for the orphan. They express and practice authentic, sacrificial concern for the orphan through total care initiatives, when and where they are called to make a difference. Many of them personally set an example of mentorship through adoption, foster care, and humanitarian relief efforts!

Every time I have volunteered for A Child's Hope Int'l, Inc., I am absolutely amazed at their work, story, and accomplishments. It is by far one of my favorite organizations. The work they do is inspiring and captivating. I can't put into words the feeling of being a part of a group coming together to put the bags of food together and being made aware of the hunger that is out there in this world.

Organized and makes giving time and money fun! The movie & explanation of why we do this, helps us to understand what it is like to be in a third world country or living here in poverty. You can experience a mission trip right in Cincy , without leaving the US. The experience is a great team building event or a church / family bonding event. The organization does not stop at humanitarian relief it also helps with adoption , foster & orphan care, making it a well rounded effort. Love this nonprofit!

Incredible organization I've had the opportunity multiple times to volunteer with over nearly 10 years. Consistently I am touched by the impact they have in providing for hungry children. The sincere efforts of A Child's Hope International / Hands Against Hunger to "give as much as possible to those in need" remains a clear indicator of their integrity of how they use donations & value the volunteers.

A Child's Hope International is a great place to volunteer and feel like you are part of something much bigger. My spirit is refreshed every time I leave. My kids have been several times through the years and I think it helps keep them grounded and opens their heart to people that need hope and assistance. It is an opportunity to be hands to reach out and help others. I feel welcomed by everyone I work with, it is great to see so many different types of people coming together for a common goal. It is focused on the children of the entire world, in our own backyard and across the globe. Cannot say enough good things about it.

My husband and I used this product when we were in Nicaragua working as missionaries. We have loved volunteering at A Child's Hope every since we came back to America. We volunteer at least once a month. It is very satisfying to help pack the high protein meals because we have seen how helpful this food really is. The Red Shirt team is always friendly and helpful. It is a great way to be involved with missions without the expense of leaving the country. There is always a short informative video to help folks understand the importance of the work you are about to do!

This organization has changed my life! I feel so blessed to have found them. People make you think that your gift of time or money is small and you can't really help that much. This place shows you differently and makes you believe that you can do so much more together. The need is so great in the world and this organization is trying to help and doing a great job!
