More than 811 million people in this world do not have enough to eat.
4 out of 5 of the world’s poor live in rural areas and depend on farming to feed their families.
We believe in a world of plenty, no person should go hungry.
We help subsistence farmers grow their own food and earn an income. When people have the tools and training to take charge of their futures, positive change not only happens — it lasts.
Through our unique Growing Project model, U.S. farmers work with their churches and surrounding communities to become part of the solution — raising money and awareness to end world hunger.
When all people at all times have access to sufficient, safe and nutritious food that meets their dietary needs for an active and healthy life. Learn how families are breaking the cycle of poverty and ending their struggle with hunger through agricultural development.
Founded as Foods Resource Bank in 1999, we’ve helped more than 2 million people in need help themselves. Our new name—Growing Hope Globally —captures the spirit of our mission and breadth of our impact.
For as little as $55 you can enable a person who is living in hunger to break the cycle of poverty and lead a healthier, more productive life.
