Thousands of children have been ministered to throughout the Philippines by our feeding programs. Our children’s feeding programs use strict attendance and monitoring records and are run for children in three age groups – 3 to 6 year olds (Level 1), 7 to 10 year olds (Level 2) and 11 to 14 year olds (Level 3).
Multiple activities are included within the feeding programs – feeding, Bible teaching, Gospel preaching, prayers for the children and their families, prayers for the communities, world missions orientation, games, memory verses, praise and worship, and assignments on the Bible. These programs may also go further to include children camps, family visits and Christmas gift giving.
Children’s feeding programs differ from other feeding programs throughout the Philippines. The team do not simply seek to provide food to children to fill their stomachs on a short term basis. They aim to provide education on nutrition and to provide nutritious meals so the health of children and their families may improve long term.
