Each year, the Food For The Poor Radio Team connects millions of radio and podcast listeners to stories of their impoverished neighbors in the Caribbean and Latin America to help prevent malnutrition. Every day, generous donors like you respond to the needs of our vulnerable brothers and sisters by giving transformative gifts to help prevent malnutrition and illness and provide food, water and emergency aid for thousands of children and families. 

As Heard on the Radio: Stories of Hope

Miles From Relief

with Paul Jacobs 

Maria Erlinda walks an hour both ways to collect a bucket of water for her family’s needs. This daily weight breaks down her body and her spirit.

A Cup of Water

For so many of us, we are always within an arm’s reach of water. For the families we serve, even access to dirty water is a long and dangerous journey.

Meet Our Radio Storytellers

Paul Jacobs

As I looked over the shoulder of the – maybe mid-60s – gentleman upon approach of the airport in Port-au-Prince, he sat in the widow seat and shook his head silently. I couldn’t imagine what I was about to experience in just a few minutes as we touched-down in the Haitian capital. He looked sad but not overwhelmed.

Anitra Parmele

As the private plane dipped again and again to give me a closer view of the devastation Hurricane Dorian had brought to Grand Bahamas and the Abaco Islands, my heart was full. Sorrow at the thought of so many people completely cut off from access to food, water and medical treatment, mingled with hope as I was there to gather stories to share on-air to inspire gifts of emergency hurricane relief.
