#TRI2FEED: 70.3 Miles and One Goal to Feed Hungry People

Can participating in a triathlon help feed hungry children around the world? It certainly can. On August 13, 2017, Josh Page-Wood, co-director of Feeding The Nations, will take part in the Ironman 70.3 Steelhead triathlon in Benton Harbor, MI. Josh has never swam more than 25 yards or biked more than 15 miles or ran more than 7 miles.

Hurricane Matthew Update: Feeding 12,000 Children in Haiti

We have news to celebrate! We were able to provide food for people affected by Hurricane Matthew in Haiti. We sent 272,160 meals—enough to feed 12,000 children one meal a day for 135 days. The food reached children in the valley near Gonaives, north of Port au Prince. This area has experienced severe drought for a couple of years.

Iraq: Feeding Survivors of Terrorism

Wondering how you can make a difference in the fight against ISIS? You can help bring food, hope and the love of Christ to families in Iraq who have escaped this terrorist group. Feeding The Nations provided food for people who have fled ISIS and have assembled in refugee camps in northern Iraq. Many have only the clothes they had on their backs when they left. The majority of the refugees are women and children, as many of the men left to fight or were killed helping their families flee. We were able to reach these people thanks to a partnership with the U.S. military. Through the Denton Program, the U.S. military ships relief supplies free-of-charge when space is available on aircraft. NGOs working where the U.S. has operations can use the program to reach citizens in … read more>>
