Children's Hunger Fund: Helping Local Churches Meet the Needs of Their Impoverished Communities

Children's Hunger Fund (CHF), a non-profit Christian organization provides a wide range of effective, efficient and responsive resources including training to local churches in helping them meet the urgent needs of their impoverished communities. The organization extends its valuable assistance to local churches in the United States and in many developing countries abroad. As of 2013, it has given over $1 billion in assistance to children and families in need.

CHF has humble beginnings. Dave Phillips, its founder, worked with just one employee with a small garage as their office from 1992 to 1994. The two-man organization worked with eight local churches, which covered 200 to 300 families.

When the Los Angeles riots happened in 1992, the organization expanded its coverage to include South Central Los Angeles. During the 1994 Northridge earthquake, FEMA requested CHF to participate in the widespread relief efforts and the organization has continued to expand since then. Today, it conducts operations in more than 72 countries including the United States.
