Feeding Programs

Millions of Haitians are food insecure.

One in three Haitians – around 3.7 million people – needs urgent food assistance, up from 2.6 million people at the end of 2018, the United Nations said in December 2019. Haiti now ranks 111 out of 117 countries on the Global Hunger Index, in the company mostly of the poorest sub-Saharan African countries.

Chances for Children partners with 13 Arche de L’Alliance Churches throughout Haiti with feeding programs and has 2-other feeding programs in Kenscoff. In addition 6-other schools, churches, orphanages are supported by supplying them with Feed My Starving Children food packets.

Using Feed My Starving Children’s food, ~5,100 children are now receiving a hot meal and safe drinking water three times per week.

A sustainable, low-water farming program was started in Massikot in 2018. 200 of the poorest families in the village have benefitted from the crops in addition to 150 goats that have been distributed to the families. Additionally, the program has been expanded to 2 of our village locations in the South near Jacmel, benefitting a total of 50 families with crops and goats.
In January 2022, we are adding a 3rd site in the South and we will have a total of 110 families in this program. All families receive goats, vet and vaccinations for a year and agriculture training along with plants and seeds.
