Our Mission

Who we are


Founded by missionary statesman Dr. Lester Sumrall (1913–1996) in 1987 to respond to God’s challenge, “That my church in the third world does not die of hunger before I return.”


Feed The Hungry has delivered more than $200 million of food and supplies to hungry, hurting people in 92 nations around the globe.


We also respond with emergency food and relief during disasters like the Japan tsunami, Haiti earthquake, Oklahoma tornadoes, Hurricane Sandy, and Syrian crisis.

What we do

Together we:


Feed those who are hungry


Empower the church worldwide


Share the hope that comes through Jesus Christ.

By feeding the hungry together, and delivering it in the name of Christ's love, you are joining with Feed The Hungry to help change people’s lives for the better, for the future... and for eternity!

How we work


We follow Christ’s calling to fulfill the physical, emotional, and spiritual needs of people in crisis.


Through financial and prayer support like yours, we deliver food and supplies using a pastor-to-pastor, church-to-church strategy.

What makes feed the hungry different?

93 cent

of every dollar given goes to program services

  • Feed the Hungry directly oversees the entire relief process to make sure your contributions get into the hands of those who need it most—when they need it most.
  • Before distributing food, we secure guarantees from government agencies, giving us the right to distribute food directly through local churches who know the people—and the need—in their communities.
  • Under our direction and leadership, food is distributed as intended. Even more important, Christ is shared with hurting people who need to hear of His love!
