How does our “Food for Learning” program work?
Almost any one of us would jump at the chance to give a bowl of nutritious soup to a child like the one pictured above. One of our pastors wrote last week and asked if it is ok to use money we send him for feeding the children who live at the garbage site (like the child pictured above) because they are so hungry. So here they come, bringing bowls, discarded ice cream cartons and other containers they dig out of someone’s garbage. They come and those containers are filled with life-saving food.
The money you send to help feed hungry children purchases food that is important to their survival. You may not be able to personally go to the Philippines and give food to a hungry child, but when you send gifts to feed the children, your gifts buy the food that is given to them. When a bowl of food is given to a child like this, it helps the child, but it is as if you were giving it to Jesus Himself (See Matthew 25:34-40).
Thank you Partners, Sponsors and Friends. The food is given to the children in the name of Jesus and touches hearts for Him. You can be part of giving hope to some very poor children in the Philippines. Your gifts help feed the very poorest of children in body (food), mind (education) and spirit (the Gospel of Jesus). Jesus is pleased with your gift.
The results of giving to this program are that the very poorest of children transform into happy, healthy, playful little kids who are able to focus on learning. The children are healthier and their grades are better. Attendance is much improved and the children are so thankful. They talk about it a lot and just want to say thank you for the good food they get to eat. One little boy said he was happy to be sponsored because he could now eat and get new school supplies.
This program is made possible by our Food for Learning Partners and others who give for that purpose. Your investment in the lives of the children is producing good returns in their lives. Thank you!!!! If you are interested in investing in the life of a very poor child, let me know or check our website http://fullnessinchristministries.org.
