An important aspect of the Hands Against Hunger solution is to partner with a qualified organization that will benefit immediately from the food packets upon arrival. The organization (whether local, regional or international) must have a:
- Presence with the children in need who trust them.
- Plan for distribution to get the food to the children in need.
- Purpose to disciple the children for the glory of God.
The Presence and Plan elements are very important components for the success of the program – and that is to reach vulnerable children. We do not ship large quantities of food and just hope that it arrives and gets to the children. That would be irresponsible.
The Purpose component is very important. Although we will help any child in distress, we primarily support those organizations that reach children in the name of Jesus Christ and endeavor to disciple these precious children in the faith. We carefully assess every opportunity and prayerfully evaluate the decision.

Our reach to children around the world begins in the greater Cincinnati area and extends to many foreign countries. This includes food for Haiti, medical supplies for Zambia, fresh water wells in India, shoes to orphans in the Ukraine and to many countries in between. This is consistent with our orphan care and humanitarian relief bridges of care.
In fact, on average our Hands Against Hunger program is providing over 10,000 meals a day – every day! To read more about the children we serve, click on any of the red pins on the map.
