About Feed the Hungry
Feed the Hungry Inc., Feed the Hungry, Feed the Hungry Mission To uplift the spirit and well-being of the poorest of the poor, the abused and the desolate through feeding, community and economic development, gift giving, educational scholarships and classroom building, and calamity relief and emergency medical assistance programs. History In 1993, the then the current president of the World Bank Group/International Monetary Fund Filipino Staff Association, Tessie Alarcon (aka Tessie Calderon), together with husband Pablito Alarcon, founded Feed the Hungry, Inc. (FtH). Thereafter, FtH became a non-profit 501(c)3 organization that reached out to street children in the Philippines and provided them a good meal during the Christmas holidays. As the program progressed each year with the help of a group of Filipino-American volunteers residing in the metropolitan Washington, D.C. area and a number of World Bank Group and IMF Filipino staff doing fund-raising events within the community, FtH evolved into an organization with programs geared not only to feeding malnourished children and giving gifts, but had expanded to include educational programs providing scholarships and books including textbooks, livelihood and infrastructure programs building classrooms, and calamity relief and emergency medical assistance. Today, Feed the Hungry, Inc. volunteers are involved in numerous projects that have assisted over a million program beneficiaries in all of the provinces in the Philippines and Metro Manila. Through partnerships and collaboration with government and non-profit organizations in the Philippines, FtH, with its ever-growing volunteers and donors, continues to play a valuable role in assisting the poorest of the poor, providing resources for a better future for those in dire need and giving hope to the needy.
