Growing Hope Globally

Growing Hope Globally (formally Foods Resource Bank) engages volunteers to raise money for 50+ overseas programs a year. All of the programs 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.


St. Matthew sponsors acreage in Forrest, Illinois, which will be planted, harvested and 100% of the proceeds used to help poor areas in the world learn how to grow crops to sustain themselves. This is not a handout but a hand-up. Please consider how you can help the hungry people in the world.
