Food For The Poor, named by The Chronicle of Philanthropy as the largest international relief and development organization in the nation, does much more than feed millions of the hungry poor in 17 countries of the Caribbean and Latin America. This interdenominational Christian ministry provides emergency relief assistance, clean water, medicines, educational materials, homes, support for orphans and the aged, skills training and micro-enterprise development assistance, with more than 95 percent of all donations going directly to programs that help the poor.
Student community service and global initiatives:
- Students For The Poor: www.studentsforthepoor.org. Students For The Poor Chapters provide students with an opportunity to become more involved not only within their community but on an international scale. It is designed to engage students, faculty, administrators, and community members in serving the poorest of the poor throughout their local communities, Latin America, and the Caribbean.
- All-Nighter for the Poor: www.allnighterforthepoor.org. The All-Nighter for the Poor event is a campus-wide, global initiative developed by Food For The Poor. The goal of the program is to increase awareness about malnutrition and to fund self-sustaining solutions — such as aquaculture and animal husbandry projects — to alleviate hunger and break the cycle of generational poverty in developing countries throughout the Caribbean and Latin America.
If you have a passion for serving the poor and you want to help create positive change, gather your friends, classmates, and faculty and join the cause as we empower one person, one family, one community at a time through these programs.
