Foods Resource Bank

Our church partners with Foods Resource Bank to raise money to help people in developing countries grow their own food.  Each year over 160 U.S. growing projects, volunteers, companies, and organizations raise over $3 million to support 40-50 overseas programs.  To administer these programs, FRB works through a network of 14 member organizations and local partner organizations in nearly 30 countries around the world.  FRB engages volunteers to raise money for overseas programs that focus on developing small-holder agriculture, often in the most remote and poorest regions of the world. We see agriculture as the solution to hunger experienced in much of the world. The church's contact for the FRB ministry is Bill Dimond, (269) 375-1504.
