Celebrate Your Mom with a Gift That Improves the Lives of Others

COCONUT CREEK, Fla. (May 1, 2017)  For just $14.60, you can feed a hungry family of four for a month and honor Mom with a heartfelt Mother's Day gift.

It's just one of the many beautiful gifts in Food For The Poor's Spring Gift Catalog.

All gifts in the charity's catalog are uniquely designed to improve the lives of poverty-stricken children and families who struggle to survive in developing countries.

Many poor mothers in the Caribbean and Latin America have no food to give their hungry children. Some rely entirely on finding rotten, discarded food in garbage dumps to feed their little ones.

"In the name of God and Jesus, we are doing better, both of us, thanks to you. Otherwise, we would have been dead," said Marie in Haiti, mother of baby Isma, who received lifesaving food from Food For The Poor, thanks to generous donors.

Even if you are a student, the catalog offers meaningful ideas for your special mom, while remaining within your budget. For $25, a gift of 20 baby chicks will provide a poor family not only with a sustainable source of protein from eggs, but also with supplemental income from selling extra eggs. For $90, you can show your mom she raised a good "kid" by giving a goat in her honor for a family in need. Your gift will grow and multiply to supply the family – and someday possibly the community – with a nutritious source of protein.

Because Food For The Poor acquires food in large quantities, you can feed a starving family of four for just $14.60 a month, or a hungry child for a whole year for $43.80.

"Every day, millions of children are forced to go hungry, thousands suffer from severe malnourishment, and their mothers are helpless to save them," said Angel Aloma, Food For The Poor's Executive Director. "When children cry out in pain, it breaks the parents' hearts because they do not have food, clean drinking water and medicines to give their children – in some cases, to save their lives."

Food For The Poor also remains committed to moving destitute families out of unsafe living conditions and into new, permanent homes. A gift of $7,200 will build a double-unit home with sanitation and a water component to give children a chance for better futures.
