Help Feed the Hungry

Give free food.

All you have to do is click a button and somewhere in the world some hungry person gets a meal to eat, at no cost to you. The food is paid for by corporate sponsors (who gain advertising in the process because you see their logo).

All you've to do is go to the site and click. But you're only allowed ONE click per day. So spread the word to others and help make a positive difference.

Your click on the "Give Free Food" button funds food for the hungry, paid for by site sponsors whose ads appear after you click and provided to people in need around the world through the efforts of Mercy Corps and America's Second Harvest.


It is estimated that one billion people in the world suffer from hunger and malnutrition. That's roughly 100 times as many as those who actually die from these causes each year.

About 24,000 people die every day from hunger or hunger-related causes. This is down from 35,000 ten years ago, and 41,000 twenty years ago. Three-fourths of the deaths are children under the age of five.

Famine and wars cause about 10% of hunger deaths, although these tend to be the ones you hear about most often. The majority of hunger deaths are caused by chronic malnutrition. Families facing extreme poverty are simply unable to get enough food to eat.

In 1999, a year marked by good economic news, 31 million Americans were food insecure, meaning they were either hungry or unsure of where their next meal would come from. Of these Americans, 12 million were children. The Hunger Site began on June 1, 1999.

Please remember to click every day to give help and hope to those with nowhere to turn. Every click counts in the life of a hungry person.


  1. If only the billions of dollars spent on wars and arms could be directed towards the billion hungry people in the world..

    Imagine the people are starving in North Korea, but that dictator is more interested in atomic weapons!

    Thanks for sharing the link.

    I agree that if we could spend all the unnecessary money to help the needy, the world would have been such a beautiful place...
    We shall do whatever we can to help humanity

  3. million of foods are going to the waste everyday.

    food distribution is a complicated issue.

    It is not the lack of food, but the distribution of food that is the problem.

    People should move to places that have food and not wait for food to be delivered to their door steps.

    In ancient times, the potatoes blight, the famine are the cause of people migrating.

    If the mountains do not come to Mohd, Mohd must go to the mountain.

  4. Joe, I sometimes wondered about that too. Nations get together on various causes but the one cause that needs help the most and which covers the basic need is not getting enough 'fire-power'. It sure is a sad state of affairs.

  5. Z, a beautiful thought indeed. We can only be the boy who throws the starfish back to sea.

  6. Robin, yes, sometimes the mountain should move if at all possible. However, the mountain would need to know where Muhammad is. I suppose it's not as simple as how we see it. Food distribution is no doubt a complicated affair but I am sure more can be done than what's being done.

  7. True true... Sad state we're in..

  8. hmmm...nvr giv up!

    this can help to raise up the awareness from the public too.

    just do whatever we are willing to do. =)

  9. LB, RS, at least we could be the boy who threw the starfish back into the ocean. Have you clicked on the site today?
