Tell Me About Sponsorship.

Your sponsorship through Food for the Hungry helps create long-term solutions to extreme poverty by addressing the root causes. The programs you support foster healthy relationships between sponsored children and their parents, their teachers, their pastors, their peers, their environment, and, most importantly, their Creator. Food for the Hungry equips churches, community leaders and families to meet the needs of children.

Can I Meet My Sponsorship Child?

Yes! Contact Food for the Hungry to learn about visitation options available.

Can I Correspond with My Sponsored Child?

Yes! You can develop a connection with your sponsored child through e-mail and handwritten letters. You can also mail photos or stickers and you’ll get regular updates on your sponsored child’s progress.

How Much Does Child Sponsorship Cost?

It costs just $32 a month to impact a child’s life forever.

Where Exactly Does My Money Go?

The programs you support will depend on where your sponsored child lives. The needs high in the mountains of Bolivia are very different from those in the rivers and plains of Bangladesh. Still, all sponsored children are enabled to go to school, with the following programs existing in most communities:

  • Church development
  • Agricultural training
  • Clean-water projects
  • Medical care
  • Vocational training
  • HIV/AIDS education

What About Financial Accountability?

Food for the Hungry has been a charter member of the Evangelical Council for Financial Accountability since 1979.

Is This a Christian Organization?

Yes. The name Food for the Hungry was inspired by Psalm 146:7, “He upholds the cause of the oppressed and gives food to the hungry.” We believe that central to God’s character is a passion for the poor and oppressed, and as Christians, we want to imitate that. Christian values and Christian staff are at the heart of this organization.
