All of our faith traditions share this in common: we are called to feed the hungry. The need is great: while sufficient food exists to feed them, still each day around the world 18,000 children die of hunger and related causes, and here at home 5,000 miss dinner most nights.

The Interfaith Hunger Initiative consists of two dozen faith communities in the Indianapolis area who are working together to help end child and family hunger. We work together to create a system of access to food through pantries in central Indiana (with Gleaners Food Bank) and schools in Kenya (through the Umoja Project), feeding and supporting thousands of children and families.

Since 2009 the Interfaith Hunger Initiative has procured over 300 tons of food for pantries, and feeds 3000 vulnerable children in Kenya through school lunch programs.

The Interfaith Hunger Initiative is an all-volunteer not-for-profit organization. All monies raised go toward feeding the hungry. A $30 donation will provide 30 meals for a child in Indianapolis AND a year of school lunch for a child in Kenya.

The Interfaith Hunger Initiative is a part of The Indy Hunger Network, working to assure access for all by 2015.
