Growing Hope Globally links the grassroots energy and commitment of agricultural communities around the United States with the capability and desire of smallholder farmers in developing countries to grow lasting solutions to hunger.

Founded in 1999 as Foods Resource Bank, Growing Hope Globally started with little more than hope and a prayer. Ohio Farmers Vernon and Carol Sloan invited their neighbors to become part of the solution to world hunger by sending corn from their fields to under-developed countries around the world. They quickly learned shipping corn was too costly – nearly 15 times the cost of the grain itself – and would wreak havoc on local farmers and markets. Needing a new idea, they sat down with a handful of Christian organizations that fund and run international food security programs. Their unique solution: Use the proceeds from crops raised and sold in the U.S. to fund agricultural development programs overseas. That seed of an idea has since blossomed to more than 165 Growing Projects in rural communities across the U.S. Together, we have helped more than 1.6 million people to break the cycle of poverty and hunger by growing their own food.
