Frequently Asked Questions


What is the breakdown of the FH operating expenses?

FH uses 83 percent of resources to serve the people who need it most around the world. Through projects and education, FH partners with the poor to increase food supplies, clean water, medical care, spiritual support and education. We help communities to become self-sustaining.

Why is the donation envelope addressed to Albert Lea, MN?

We found using an agency that provides donation processing services reduces our administrative costs. We don’t have to add another building, processing equipment, or additional staff. It keeps our overhead costs lower and gets donations working in the field more quickly.

Where do the grants come from?

Most of our grants come from USAID — the United States Agency for International Development. In emergencies, some funds can come from OFDA — USAID’s Office of Foreign Disaster Assistance. Food for the Hungry has been blessed to receive many such grants over the years. We have a track record of accomplishing, monitoring and reporting on our work in serving the poor.
