Feed The Little Children Inc. was established in Broome in 2011 to provide genuinely and extremely disadvantaged children, with vital nutrition as one of the fundamentals of life.


Our purpose:
The primary purpose of Feed The Little Children Inc. (FTLC) has been to prevent young Australian children starting on the pathway to a life of crime because they are forced to steal to satisfy their hunger. Our Broome based project has already evidenced a 47% reduction in charges against children for stealing, benefitting the children and the Broome community.

Indigenous and Aboriginal communities across Australia face significantly high levels of deep poverty and household food insecurity due to various factors such as historical, situational and cultural circumstances - up to 40% of Indigenous Australian families live below the poverty line and struggle to provide the basic levels of nutrition to children in their households.
The most vulnerable are children in the age groups of 0 to 14 years of age.

What we do!
Fresh meals are prepared in their donated kitchen and delivered with the support of volunteers and generous donors twice a week to approximately 350 children, from mainly single parent Aboriginal families.


Our Mission.
Our Mission is “to provide a fully funded emergency food service 365 days a year, direct to children in need

Your support is important to realize our vision of providing a meal for needy children in our community who otherwise go hungry.
