By the numbers.

Nearly one-third of the world’s population are moderately or severely food-insecure.

A child dies every 10 seconds from malnutrition.

In low-income countries, 73 million children attend school hungry.


Insufficient nutrition compromises the immune system, leading to poor health and lower school attendance. It is estimated that 200-500 million school days are lost per year due to poor health.


1 in 4 people around the world lack access to safe drinking water.

Globally, 85 million children are underweight.

Let’s feed children together.

Meals are the starting point to building strong, thriving communities. Therefore, Convoy of Hope’s goal is to offer nutritious food, access to clean and safe water, and knowledge of healthy environments.

Feed Children Nutritious Meals

Many of the children engaged in the feeding program receive their only meal of the day from Convoy of Hope. That reality fuels Convoy’s commitment to addressing the problems of hunger and poverty simultaneously. For this reason, each time Convoy opens a site to feed children, the process starts with building customized plans for every neighborhood, city, and country where Convoy works. Each program center provides:

  • • Regular assessments from local, qualified nutritionists.
  • • Additional nutrition for children experiencing undernutrition.
  • • Access to deworming medication twice per year.
  • • Meals supplemented with multivitamins or specific vitamins and minerals.
  • • Where possible, prenatal and postnatal nutrition.
  • • A medical intervention plan for new beneficiaries experiencing extreme malnutrition or undernutrition.

Provide Clean & Safe Water

Water is life. Without access to it, communities cannot thrive. Whether it’s through digging a well or setting up a filtration system, Convoy of Hope is committed to doing what is necessary to get clean water to those who lack access to it. Your support of the Children’s Feeding initiative helps:

  • • Ensure enough clean water is available for students to drink and wash.
  • • Dig or repair wells.
  • • Source piped water, if available.
  • • Evaluate existing latrines or construct new ones.
  • • Ensure access to handwashing stations.
  • • Provide education and training on safe water practices.
  • • Provide proper (sanitary) methods to dispose of menstrual health products.

Create Healthy Environments

The strategy for Children’s Feeding starts with a meal, but food is only part of the solution. Convoy of Hope partners with communities to develop healthy environments, provide training, and evaluate infrastructure needs. Convoy’s work ensures that:

  • • All kitchens meet Convoy of Hope’s food storage and sanitation standards.
  • • Preexisting safety issues at program centers are addressed.

Support Education

Poor nutrition, improper hygiene, and lack of sanitation can derail a child’s life. To lessen the impact of these issues, Convoy of Hope provides:

  • • Quarterly training in WASH (Water, Sanitation, and Hygiene).
  • • Expectant mothers with information about proper nutrition, hygiene, and infant wellness practices.
  • • Resources that promote attendance and success in a child’s education.
