About Food for the Hungry

Our vision is to see all forms of human poverty ended worldwide. Our purpose is to walk together, following God’s call to respond to human suffering and graduate communities from extreme poverty. Food for the Hungry’s legacy, from the days of our founding 49 years ago, is to serve the most vulnerable one at a time.

We ground our work on a core set of simple values.

• We follow Jesus. We are ambassadors of Jesus in our thoughts, words, and deeds.
• Our work is relational. We pursue reconciled relationships of grace with those with whom we work, partner, and serve.
• We invest wisely and focus on results. We are stewards in God’s Kingdom and strive to invest all resources to maximize missional impact.
• We serve with humility. We recognize the dignity of others and put their interests above our own.
• We pursue beauty, goodness, and truth. In a broken world, we are witnesses through our relationships and work of God’s beauty, goodness, and truth.

These values guide our decisions, shape the way we interact with one another and with our partners, and characterize our actions while we work in some of the most difficult circumstances throughout the world. Together, we call our vision, purpose, and values the Heartbeat.
