Frequently Asked Questions
What is “150 Million Meals and Counting,” and what is Convoy of Hope doing?
Convoy of Hope wants to alleviate the suffering of those who have lost income or the predictability of meals as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic. This includes but is not limited to children who are missing free lunches due to school closures, people who have lost their jobs, and elderly citizens.
Convoy of Hope is supplying partners, churches, and community organizations with meals to be distributed across the United States. To help us accomplish this goal, we are raising funds to provide meals and other emergency relief supplies to those suffering because of the COVID-19 pandemic.
Why is Convoy of Hope raising funds to distribute million meals?
The need is great. We have already received thousands of requests for food from nearly every state. Hal Donaldson, Convoy of Hope’s President, put it this way, “This campaign is a united act of compassion. Churches, businesses, civic organizations, and local governments are coming together to help children and families who need it most.”
Some food has already been provided by our generous corporate partners. However, because of the current demand on supplies, food will also need to be purchased. Additional resources will be needed as the new virus continues to spread and needs increase exponentially.
My church already supports Convoy of Hope’s international work. Will that work be impacted by this crisis response?
Convoy of Hope is continuing all of our regular ongoing international programs (Children’s Feeding, Women’s Empowerment, and Agriculture). No resources will be diverted from any international programs to meet needs here in the United States.
When is this happening?
Convoy of Hope’s response has been underway since mid-March! We have delivered much-needed food and relief supplies to churches and partners across the United States. Like our response to any major disaster or crisis, we will continue to do as much as we can for as long as we can.
Can our church help? If so, how?
We believe as the body of Christ we can come together and respond in a transformational way to the crisis at hand. Alone, we can only do so much. But together, we can help feed and resource millions who are in need.
