Food for the Hungry

Food for the Hungry (FH) is an evangelical Christian organization founded by Dr. Larry Ward that works to facilitate community transformation based on biblical principles, actively partnering with local churches on a wide range of development issues. Its economic development and healthcare initiatives work symbiotically with its one-on-one child sponsorship program, while agricultural training and irrigation projects seek to improve food security and hygiene. Food for the Hungry incorporates HIV/AIDS education and treatment into its programs when relevant and operates emergency relief programs following disasters and violent conflict. Food for the Hungry encourages its supporters to spend time volunteering, either through short-term missions, as long-term development workers, or as students on a semester abroad. The organization maintains a presence in 45 countries on five continents. Food for the Hungry has a matching-funds program with USAID, though it is primarily funded through corporate and private donations. Its expenses total about $64 million annually.
