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.
