This rating was published 03/01/2019 and includes data from FY2017, the most recent 990 received at that time.

Feed the Hunger is a Christian mission organization founded over 50 years ago. Our goal is simple: feed the spiritual and physical hunger in the needy. We do this most often through the distribution of God's Word and our nutritious meal packets. We are focused on meeting these two most basic hungers among three primary target groups:
1. At-risk children in America and overseas
2. Those in crisis situations, such as refugees and victims of natural disasters
3. Ethnic groups that are just beginning to be reached with the message of Jesus
Beyond these target groups, if anyone claims to be in need spiritually or physically, we want to help with Bibles and food as God provides.
