A Proud Sponsor of Feed The Children - Lily of the Desert

A Proud Sponsor of Feed The Children

Today Lily of The Desert pauses to shine a spotlight on an organization close to our hearts – Feed the Children. Founded over forty years ago, Feed the Children has a mission of “providing hope and resources for those without life’s essentials.” They are committed to creating a world where no child goes to bed hungry.

Helping Children In Need

Food insecurity for children and their families is a global issue. In the US alone, it is estimated that 1 in 6 households with children can be identified as food insecure, meaning that parents struggle to provide consistent meals for their children. Around the world, 820 million people are suffering from hunger and malnutrition is the most significant contributor to disease in the world. These are some of the issues that Feed the Children is tackling head-on every day.

Nearly one in six American children is food insecure, and the meals they consume at school are their only source of nutrition. This creates a precarious situation during the summer months. Feed the Children stands in the gap by partnering with schools and other community-based groups.

Through its five strategically-placed distribution centers, food and critical supplies were provided to over 8 million children and families in the US in 2021.

Promoting Childhood Wellness

As a leading natural products manufacturer, Lily is a strong advocate for instilling healthy choices early in childhood. Feed the Children understands the importance of cultivating proper nutrition early in life. They’re taking significant steps to nurture childhood wellness through many of the services it offers around the globe. These programs help to:

  • Ensure that clean water is readily available
  • Support nutritional, social, cultural, and environmental activities around the world through child-focused community development
  • Provide children with basic personal supplies, including soap, toothpaste, and shampoo
  • Promote success in the classroom through access to resource rooms containing food and hygiene items and free teacher and classroom supplies  
  • Supply backpacks with essential items for children caught in the path of natural disasters
  • Provide financial programs that help families and communities reduce poverty conditions

Whether addressing nutritional needs, providing educational services, or responding to natural disasters, Feed the Children is ready to put boots and supplies on the ground wherever children and their families are in crisis. They offer multiple ways to get involved and support their vision, including corporate partnerships, child sponsorship, and volunteering at the community level.  

Lily of The Desert believes in their noble mission, and we’re proud to support its efforts.
