Feeding Children Everywhere is dedicated to the vision of a hunger-free world. Since 2010, FCE has activated more than 800,000 volunteers to package and distribute over 127 million meals to children and families in need. FCE offers a wide range of programs, from international development to domestic meal distribution to disaster relief to micro farming grants. One of its most successful programs has been its Full Cart program, which provides grocery boxes each containing 125 meals of non perishable food to the doorsteps of families who are in the federal supplemental nutrition assistance program (SNAP), but had a low balance on their SNAP accounts.
