Feed The Hunger Katy has Provided One Million Meals to Families in Need


On December 10th Feed The Hunger Katy reached a milestone by packing one million meals in 2020.   

Feed the Hunger is a Christian mission organization that helps people in spiritual and physical need.  Headquartered in North Carolina, Feed the Hunger equips their members to feed spiritual hunger with tools like Bibles, bicycles and micro-enterprise projects. Physical hunger is met through the provision of nutritious food, clean water and emergency aid and relief. The organization seeks to meet these needs in three target audiences: (1) at-risk children in America and overseas, (2) those in crisis situations, such as refugees and victims of natural disasters, and (3) ethnic groups that are just beginning to be reached with the message of Jesus.

Packathon Coordinator Regina Alexander, along with a team of dedicated volunteers and committee members in Katy, made it their goal to pack one million meals in 2020.  The meals they packed have been shipped all over the globe, and have also made a huge impact locally in the Katy community. By providing meals to other nonprofits in the area, including Katy Christian Ministries, Hope Impacts, Compassion Katy, Attack Poverty, Eyes on Me and Children Like Loni, they have been able to bless thousands of needy families with healthy meals and spiritual needs.

They are not stopping there. They have another Social Distance packathon coming up on February 25th – 28th,  where they hope to pack upwards of 600,000 more meals. Feed the Hunger is allowing families to come together to participate in a “Mission Trip” in their own backyard.

“Hunger has no ears,” so people have a difficult time hearing the Gospel when they are hungry. A Packathon is a two-hour, hands-on service opportunity for anyone ages five to 105. It is a truly rewarding event and will bring people together in a way the community may have never seen before.
