Food for the Hungry was founded in 1971 by Dr. Larry Ward. Like many of us, he felt pain for the thousands of children dying each day from hunger. After praying, he held to the simple premise that “they die one at a time, and so we can help them one at a time.”

When you partner with Food for the Hungry (FH), you'll be serving the poor in two ways. FH responds to help shelter, feed and clothe survivors of natural disasters. FH also does long-term development work with the poor to transform impoverished communities into healthy, productive places for children to grow. Learn more about where and how we work here.
