It's not enough to simply fill the stomach and walk away. It's not enough to simply send food. This is why we partner with organizations like Hope for the Hungry who emphasize continued sustainability. What does that mean? Well, the bulk of the food sent through Hope for the Hungry will be used in School Feeding Programs and Children's Homes where care and education accompany the food.
There are many efforts made to teach the local people how to advance so that they are never on the brink of starvation again. That's not to say we never deliver to the same place twice - sometimes the children in the area need a little extra boost of nutrition so we will go in with another smaller shipment when necessary.
