Children’s Hunger Relief Fund was formed in 1975 by Dr. Colonel V. Doner and a group of businessmen and local pastors who decided that they could no longer look away from the needy children they saw “lying by the roadside,” similar to the parable of the Good Samaritan. They determined to do something. Three decades later, these men and women have been joined by thousands of other “Good Samaritans.” As a result, the “Samaritan Strategy” has saved tens of thousands of children’s lives over the past thirty years.

The Christian Relief Fund is dedicated to following Christ's example of ministering to human needs: spiritually, physically and emotionally, by feeding the hungry, healing disease and heartbreak, fighting ignorance and poverty through education and preaching the Gospel through word and deed.

Foods Resource Bank works on behalf of its member organizations—15 of the mainline Christian denominations or their agencies—to mobilize and increase the resources needed to support small holder, agricultural food security programs in some of the world’s poorest villages. In the U.S., community growing projects raise a crop or other marketable resource, monetize it, and make the proceeds available to FRB. These financial resources are provided to the member organizations of FRB, who work with their in-country partners worldwide to help local communities to become self-sufficient and food-secure, producing enough to feed themselves and vulnerable individuals (AIDS orphans, the elderly, women and children), with extra to share, barter or sell to purchase basic medicines and staples, and send their children to school.
