Food for the Hungry seeks to end ALL forms of human poverty by going to the hard places and walking with the world’s most vulnerable people. We’ve been serving through purposeful relief and development for over 4 decades. We believe in the fight against poverty, which is why we serve the vulnerable in over 20 countries globally.

Food for the Hungry, in partnership with the Sweathawgs, serves the community of Placer Bonito in the Dominican Republic by sending community development teams, while also serving the community of La Guazara through development projects.

Sweathawgs is a collective group of advocates who strive to help the most vulnerable. They are a devoted group of people committed to seeing extreme poverty END around the world. This partnership strives to provide for both spiritual and physical hungers through community-defined needs.
