Goal: 5 million meals

With the help of generous Christians, we are providing 5 million meals in one year to some of the poorest of the poor. The year is coming to a close, and we are just about 384,000 meals short of our goal of 5,000,000 meals. We need your help to fill the funding gap. Our ministry partners around the world are depending on us for these meals, which will be distributed through school feeding programs, shipments to disaster and famine victims, nutrition centers, and feeding programs for the elderly, sick, and orphaned. The need is great, but we know that every meals helps:  “It is not the will of your Father which is in heaven, that even one of these little ones should perish” (Matthew 18:14).
