As human beings search for positions of power and influence, children are often overlooked and suffer the worst outcomes. The CHILDREN’S INTERNATIONAL FOOD PROJECT is a non-profit organization that believes that every child’s life is valued and holds the same potential, excitement and opportunity as any other life. Our mission is to provide nutritious food such as fresh fruits, vegetables, protein and dairy to children suffering from malnutrition, eventually culminating in more sustainable livestock, farming and clean water programs in the places we serve. A sustainable model is essential for providing ongoing help to communities around the world, as opposed to feeding someone that is starving, for a day or a week, and then stop, we continually strive to leave a sustainable footprint wherever we’ve been.
The Children’s International Food Project’s team are passionate about giving back to those in need and have been working feeding the poor here in America for the last 30+ years, working with charitable organizations such as The Midnight Mission, The Salvation Army, as well as the Boy Scouts and Children’s Hospital. CIFP board member and Developmental Director, B. Paul Liss, has worked with Arnold Schwarzenegger, Los Angeles Mayor Villaraigosa, Anthony Hopkins, Dick Van Dyke and many other notables feeding the homeless and kids during his 16 year tenure at the 100 year old Midnight Mission.
We have a long history of going to third world countries and seeing the poverty and suffering first hand, so we decided to form an organization dedicated to helping feed children where malnutrition claims the lives of 2.6 million children every year and is the #1 cause of preventable child deaths. The CIFP team is incredibly proud to expand our mission to help millions of children achieve good health and the chance to lead healthy, meaningful lives.
Most poor third world children live on basic staples such as rice or beans with very little daily nutrients, which often results in disease and illness. We know how important adequate nutrition is and if we provide this early in their lives we can give these children a healthy start, changing the course of their future and ours.
Real commitment comes from real caring. The ability to do good works comes from real giving. We will work tirelessly to help create a world where every child born, regardless of circumstance, has the opportunity to lead a healthy, happy, productive life. We thank all of our wonderful supporters for their ongoing support and for their help leaving a mark behind of a brighter, healthier, more prosperous future.
