Hunger and extreme poverty

In the countries we serve, hunger is an overwhelming reality for our families. They live in extreme poverty, and for some, it means searching trash for discarded food. In Guatemala and Honduras, where poverty rates are very high, we’ve helped families who used to spend their whole day in garbage dumps searching for aluminum cans, copper, or bottles.

Insufficient income

Poor families often have limited or unstable sources of income, making it difficult for them to afford an adequate and nutritious diet. They rely on loans or credit to purchase food, which can lead to a cycle of debt and financial instability. Chronic hunger and malnutrition can lead to health problems, including stunted growth in children, weakened immune systems, and cognitive development issues.

Be the catalyst for change

Getting families out of hazardous activities and stabilizing their health is critical to a better future. Feeding a family for a month is a stepping stone that will allow us to put them on a pathway to self-reliance and sustainability. It means using that time to enroll the parents into our micro-enterprise program and send their children to school, which we couldn’t do without our donors or partners.

Help Avert a Humanitarian Crisis
Haiti Needs Urgent Assistance

In recent days, a surge of violence in Haiti has forced at least 360,000 people out of their homes. Food For The Poor’s distribution centers need more resources to serve the 4 million people who are now facing acute food insecurity. Help us restock and ship more containers to respond to the immediate crisis and prepare the recovery efforts to help internally displaced families return home.
