His Eternal Power has been united with Feed the Children since 2/2001 and thru a united effort has traveled throughout 48 state many times over Feeding and clothing americas families in need. By the Generousity of All who are involved with Feed The Children this has been made possible.Without the donors of Feed the children and Feed the childrens willingness to help others to help others so many more would go hungry.We have been united with Feed the children and will continue to be, to continue Feeding the Hungry. I like the phrase Its who we are and it is what we do and I beleive it is what God has told us to 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 am the CEO of a statewide faith-based, free foodbank in Arkansas. We have been a distribution partner with Feed The Children for over 20 years. When FTC has food to share, they call or email. When we face shortages in food, we call them and they respond. When disasters hit Arkansas and we request assistance, they respond in a big way.

As a Christian organization, one of our most important resources is to pray for whatever we need, and more times than I can count, the way God answers our prayers is through Feed The Children.

FTC also seems to do a good job of inspecting the agencies they partner with, to make sure the food is not sold, traded, or used for purposes other than feeding the hungry. There is a pretty intensive application and inspection process, which I would think their donors, especially food donors, would appreciate.

Many foodbanks charge a shared maintenance fee, so donated food ends up costing the hunger agency. That is never the case with Feed The Children, and they do not allow their recipients to charge for the food either. I appreciate that donated food is given away based on need, not on how much money the charity has to spend.

Feed the Children has helped many of our clients with children. They have made it possible for families to survive and thrive with there outstanding compassions and never ending devotion to help people in need. They have made it possible in the past years for our clients to have Thanksgiving and Christmas dinner with there families without having to beg or receive help from the Dept. of Human Services. I know that through our continued partnership our clients will continue to flourish and we will be able to better serve them as well.

This organization truly makes a difference by giving food to those in need across the country. I am with the Macon Rescue Mission and they sent us 400 food boxes to distribute. The poverty rate here in Macon, GA is extremely high so this was a huge blessing. I was happy to see their work first-hand.

I am the executive director for a women and childrens shelter in Kaufman, Texas. I have worked with Feed the Children for approximately 6 years or more. I always have found them to be extremely helpful, creditable, professional, and more than accommodating in helping other ministries and organizations. My hat goes off to them for the incredible job they do all over our world. They are certainly and worthwhile and most needed organization.

I have had the opportunity to help distribute food at several Feed The Children distributions. They work with local agencies to ensure that the people who receive help are truly in need.

The drivers, the coordinators and everyone representing the organization are first class and they are committed to the work they do.

This organization is well worthy of everyone's support.

When I give to charities, I always include Feed the Children. Seeing their semi trucks around the United States reassures me they are using my donation for their mission to feed children and families. I encourage everyone to be a supporter of this organization.

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.

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!!!

Since as early as I can remember, God has placed this organization on my heart for prayer and I continually do so. I do hope to volunteer actively in the future. God bless everyone involved and sharing His love to those who hunger and thirst.
