Help fight child poverty in
the U.S. Not today, tomorrow or any other day...
I won't let poverty rob American kids of their hopes and dreams.
Our Impact on Poverty in America
About one out of every five U.S. households experiences "food insecurity"—they run out of money and food in any given month and go hungry, according to the U.S. Department of Agriculture.
In response, World Vision prepares and distributes family food kits to serve the most vulnerable children and families in America. Each kit contains three to four meal packets (breakfast, lunch, dinner). That's enough food to feed a family of five for one day by providing sustenance such as oatmeal, lentil soup, and pasta.
In FY2013, World Vision distributed enough family food kits to provide nearly 1 million meals. See how World Vision assists children and families in times of need.
World Vision and our partners continue to positively impact the lives of children and families in the U.S. Be inspired by these stories—and then submit a story of your own.
Rebuilding Hope at Home
World Vision's U.S. Programs is committed to the well-being of children and youth here at home.
We work to create environments where all children and youth are healthy and thriving, cared for and protected, and making a positive contribution to their communities. We focus our work in some of the nation's most distressed and underserved communities, where poverty is high and opportunities are limited. We also serve in many places where disaster strikes.
