they’re moved and inspired by their Christian belief that every person has intrinsic value, and that it’s our responsibility to advocate for the poor and marginalized without regard to race, creed or nationality and without adverse distinction of any kind.

they serve on the basis of need alone and strive to respect the culture and customs of the people they serve in order to preserve their humanity and dignity.

THEY provide life-changing resources such as clean water, medical aid, food, equal educational opportunities to girls and boys, vocational training and empowerment in the midst of unimaginable hardships. their view of poverty is holistic and complex.

they honor the people we serve by inviting them to contribute to the process and are grateful to be invited into the communities they serve and work side-by-side with local leaders, responding to their needs with transformative solutions, which are both sustainable and implemented at the hands of the communities themselves.

Our international staff belongs to the nations they serve. We are not foreigners or outsiders offering a new way of life. We are sisters and brothers lifting the shared burden from the shoulders of our global family.

THEY’re proud of the communities THEY enter, but more than that, THEY’re proud of the ones THEY exit. These are the communities where extreme poverty no longer has a seat at the table. They’re self-sustainable and living out God’s purpose for their lives.

food for the hungry celebrates with them and then intentionally seeks out the next community suffering under the heavy weight of poverty.
