Policy & Advocacy

Food for the Hungry advocates for the poor at the local, national, regional and global levels. We actively work with community and government leaders across the world to affect change in the world’s most vulnerable people.

Food for the Hungry recognizes that government entities should be treated as partners, so we closely work with those elected to public office in order to challenge legislation, policies, systems and attitudes that contribute to poverty worldwide.

Through a combination of strategic relationships and divine influence, we’re able usher justice and renew communities so God’s purpose is revealed in each person we serve.

What Can I Do?


Prayer is one of the most compelling and influential ways we can petition God to move in the lives of the vulnerable. It serves as the greatest intangible gift that you can offer. Please pray for our staff as they petition lawmakers to mobilize their influence towards a world without extreme poverty.

Our Father in Heaven,
Please guide the Food for the Hungry staff as they seek to work with lawmakers and elected officials on behalf of vulnerable people. We ask for your favor as they leverage their influence to create policies, legislation and systems that will protect all of your children. I ask that you offer your hand of protection over them as they seek to bring about restoration to your precious people.
