The Gift-giving Program is the signature program of Feed the Hungry, Inc. that launched its charitable endeavors. Gift-giving projects are undertaken to address immediate needs such as shortages in food and sanitation supplies, especially in poor communities. Gift-giving activities are short-term stop-gap measures meant to bridge efforts to lead communities to self-sufficiency while recovering from calamities or confronted with long-term problems due to poverty.
Gift-giving activities are mostly undertaken by FtH volunteers in coordination with various non-governmental organizations, local government units, Social Welfare and Development Offices and other private individuals in various sectors in the Philippines. The Gift-giving Program, with its team of volunteers from the Washington, D.C. area, Las Vegas, Nevada, and Kona, Hawaii joined by local volunteers, has distributed about PhP11.7 million worth of gift bags (containing food items, school supplies, toiletries, toys, and medicines, among others) to indigent orphans, street children, the sick, handicapped and elderly, and disadvantaged communities in the Philippines since 1993.
From January 1, 2011 to October 15, 2011, the gift-giving activities accounted for PhP776,078.40 of the total FtH donations. Benefiting from these gift-giving activities were families, students, and indigent children in the following places:
