Our Mission:

Feeding Children Everywhere is a social charity that empowers and mobilizes people to assemble healthy meals for hungry children.

The Movement

This is the story of the Feeding Children Everywhere movement and how it began…

1. The Movement Begins

Events in Feeding Children Everywhere founder Don Campbell’s life made him the man of the house at an early age. As a result, Don became the family chef at 10 years old.This love for food carried over into Don’s adult life. Don has always had an open table, at times feeding as many as 40 children from his community at one time.

2. The Haiti Earthquake

After the 2010 earthquake in Haiti Don Campbell and his wife Kristen decided they had to get involved. So they decided to partner with a food aid organization to send meals to Haiti. Inspired, the Campbells scraped together their $9,000 life savings and founded Feeding Children Everywhere. With the help of dedicated friends and volunteers the movement began.

3. 90 Days Later

Just 90 days after starting the Feeding Children Everywhere movement, they were able to ship the first 250,000 meal container into Haiti. Open Door Haiti became the first school that Feeding Children Everywhere would partner with during the movement.

4. The Movement Hits a Milestone

By November 2011, Feeding Children Everywhere had shipped over 5 million meals. These meals have been sent to hungry and starving children on four continents throughout the world. Schools and orphanages have been able to nearly triple in size because of the meals supplied to their program.

5. Love Local

In late 2011, 60 Minutes aired a segment called Hard Times Generation: Homeless Children. It featured a boy and a girl named Arielle and Austin. They were homeless in the Campbell’s hometown. Heartbroken by the story, Feeding Children Everywhere created a program called Love Local to combat hunger here at home. The Campbell’s were inspired to make sure that every family could go to a dinner table with food on it.

6. The Movement Today

Love Local was launched in January 2012. Feeding Children Everywhere will ship millions of meals this year to fill crisis food pantries in local schools.In that time, schools have been sponsored, bellies have been filled, and people have made a meaningful difference.

7. The Need

The need is to put 100 million meals in crisis food pantries at public schools around the US each year. We believe that every child in the United States, and around the world should have sustainable access to food.

Together, we are Feeding Children Everywhere.
