They leave behind their families for days on end. They travel miles by plane, bus, and then by foot on dirt paths. They meet families in despair. They meet volunteers glad to serve. They are Food For The Poor’s interpid photographers.
As a part of an occasional series we’ll present the extraordinary work of our photographers and showcase the photos that strike a chord with you and with us here at the office.

Food For The Poor has been serving the people of Haiti since 1986. This photo, taken by Hilda Perez, captures a woman tending to a vat of food. At the Food For The Poor Feeding Center in Port-au-Prince, Haiti, volunteers and employees cook many vats of rice and beans for the hungry six days a week.
Our chief goal in Haiti is to provide the means to become more self-sufficient. To help, donate at www.foodforthepoor.org/rebuildhaiti.
