“That’s what Food for the Hungry is–it’s loving your neighbor as yourself. It’s taking care of God’s people. Being around Food for the Hungry now and seeing firsthand what they do, one of the things I love the most is how much dignity they bring to people in a community. That’s one of the unique markers of this incredible organization.”

Chris Tomlin

“Food for the Hungry’s work with refugees is truly transformational, not just on an individual level with children and families, but also at a community level.,the way they come alongside the refugees allows the refugees to determine their own future and empowers them to have that hope.”

Ann Voskamp

Words from the Founder

“We start with the face of God. He cares about the hungry. We know he does, because there is more than abundant evidence of this in His Word. And he has specifically mandated us to do something about it. We find that over and over again in the Bible.”
