About Us

Past, Present and Future

 Louella Thompson
The Dream Center/Feed The Hungry Project  Founder  �


Feed The Hungry Project [FTHP] was established in 1987 by Middletown Ohio resident and hairdresser Mrs. Louella Thompson.

Heeding the voice of God to: “feed my people”, she started FTHP out of her home .

As her dream grew, the need for additional space grew as well.


And as only God would have it, Mrs. Thompson was able to purchase the corner lot adjacent to her house. Through donations from the community and the help of volunteers, the Dream Center was built in 1997.

Feed The Hungry Make A Dream Camp  Summer programs can be filled with fun and games, round out a child’s education, and offer experiences that aren’t available during the school year. They also have the potential to reverse summer learning loss and increase educational equity. FTHP Make a Dream Camp will provide an opportunity for children to explore, grow, have fun, while also providing educational enrichment components that can mitigate the summer learning gap.
