"If you want to go fast, go alone. If you want to go far, go together." - African Proverb
Food for the Hungry (FH) believes that through collaboration, we can do more to move in the lives of the vulnerable. When we partner with other organizations that share a mutual vision and mission to empower the poor, we’re able to expand our work to reach more communities and help more people escape the generational cycle of poverty.
Institutional Donors provide strategic resources that complement and leverage FH’s privately funded long term community development programs. Often these partners allow FH to execute its programming with increased technical rigor and impact. Partners in this space include:
United States Agency for International Developement (USAID)
United Kingdom Department for International Development (DFID)
World Food Program (WFP)
The United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF)
United Nations Office for Coordination of Humanitatian Affairs (OCHA)
Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO)
German Corporation for International Cooperation (GIZ)
For-Profit Businesses, Social Responsibility campaigns
FH seeks to leverage its footprint globally in poor and vulnerable communities to help sustainably link the private sector. Additionally, we work to help corporations engage in global citizenship and sustainability issues.

Churches all over the country are actively helping Food for the Hungry (FH) end poverty through a variety of partnerships.
We regularly partner with churches to help communities tackle their biggest obstacles. Combining your church’s heart for the poor and FH’s global experience, we can connect you to the community and project that needs your help the most.
Give your church the opportunity to live out the direct call of God from Micah 6:8: “He has told you, O man, what is good; and what does the Lord require of you but to do justice, and to love kindness, and to walk humbly with your God?”
Professional Athletes, Coaches, Teams, Leagues and Associations
The goal of FH Sports Initiatives is to provide a “Voice for the Voiceless” by partnering with professional athletes in all sports. Our staff is devoted to walking with professional athletes and connecting with their existing passions to help the most vulnerable in the world.
Through the FH Artists program, Christian music artists and other genre artists are using their voices to speak out for impoverished people. You can partner with FH artists by volunteering at events and spreading the message through social media.
Universities and Colleges, Research Institutes, Think Tanks
FH is committed to learning so that it may increasingly improve its impact in service to the poor. Partnerships with universities and other research institutes allow FH to more effectively become a learning organization. In addition to learning for increasing programming impact, project learning and research allows FH and its research partners to share successful models as well as demonstrate models that do not work as well.
Some university and research partners include:
University of North Carolina, Institute of Breastfeeding
Johns Hopkins University
University of Washington, Global Health Department
