Feed the Hungry
Dr. Lester Sumrall (1913-1996) traveled the world as a missionary statesman for over sixty years and saw firsthand the terrible suffering caused by hunger and poverty. In 1987, he was challenged by God with a vision to feed those innocent people who are plagued by such desperate situations. With enthusiasm and determination, LeSEA Global Feed The Hungry® was founded that same year.
From its conception, Feed The Hungry has focused on bringing help to those in need both physically and spiritually. We must do more than just feed empty bellies. Because we work exclusively through local churches and ministries, each distribution also provides an opportunity to touch the spirit and soul of those in need through prayer, encouragement, and sharing the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Wherever and whenever possible we also distribute Bibles to those receiving family food packs. Physical food is temporal, but the Bread of Life can change a life for eternity.
