Nonprofit Overview

Causes: Philanthropy, Philanthropy, Voluntarism & Grantmaking Foundations

Mission: Food For The Poor (FFP) ministers to spiritually renew impoverished people throughout Latin America and the Caribbean. Established in 1982 as a 501(c)(3)corporation, our goals are to improve the health, economic, social and spiritual conditions of the men, women and children we serve. Food For The Poor raises funds and provides direct relief assistance to the poor, usually by purchasing specifically requested materials and distributing them through the churches and charity organizations already operating in areas of need. In this way, the organization serves the poor with dignity and ensures the most appropriate use of donors’ funds. Our ministry reflects God’s unconditional love, which surrenders all, inspires trust and faith, and embraces all people regardless of race, status or creed.

Geographic areas served: The Caribbean and Latin America

Programs: Healthcare - food for the poor shipped over 618 trailer loads of medicines, medical supplies, and equipment that help maintain clinics, hospitals, and nutritional centers to provide much needed medical care to the poorest of the poor.

basic needs - food for the poor distributes aid to support the feeding, clothing, and sheltering of the poor. Over 52 million pounds of food including rice, beans, grain, canned food and other assorted food, enough to feed millions of malnourished children and their families was distributed in 2014. We have built over 7,367 housing units for families in need of adequate shelter and since our inception in 1982, have constructed over 98,000 housing units for the poor.

education - food for the poor built, rebuilt or contracted to build 44 schools, also shipped 433 trailer loads of school furniture, books and supplies to give eager students the tools necessary to learn. These innocent, hopeful children become students who thrive on the opportunity to learn and to obtain skills they need to gain employment.

Yes my name is Nancy I've been there and one of the employee helped me out with food and stuff she was very nice to me and I'm so glad I had her and I'm coming back to see if I can get helped again with food and other stuff
There's something else I was wondering if y'all help people with there rent and deposit I've been praying every day to God that I will find me a good job so I can take care of my needs and health I'm not giving up cos I know he's there for me he's going to see that I will get a good job
But if I can get help on rent and deposit or just rent the landlord said I could move in cos he knows my situation and that was very nice of him and said I could pay the deposit when I can see that's God bless me already
But I wouldn't appreciate it if I could get some help with the rent
But most of all God bless you all for doing a great job helping people out
