540 boxes-116,640 meals– went to Nicaragua through Feed My Starving Children’s partner Food for the Poor. This is the same organization that received our meals last year, and they are involved in a variety of programs. In Nicaragua specifically, they provide medical care through several clinics, they sponsor 22 orphanages and they also build housing units.
The remaining 468 boxes-101,088 meals– are going to Haiti, also through Food for the Poor. In addition to feeding in Haiti, Food for the Poor does a lot of construction and clean water initiatives. As of last year they had built 10,000 homes in Haiti.
