Through Grow Hope, you are helping us get one step closer to a world without hunger.
“This is such an amazing campaign. I loved getting updates from the farm about how my acre was doing." - Cindy Klassen (Canadian Olympian)
Last year, the United Nations reported that nearly one in three people did not have access to enough food. And while global food insecurity has been rising since 2014, the estimated increase in 2020 was equal to that of the previous five years combined.
You can help MCC respond to the overwhelming rise in food insecurity through Grow Hope. By sponsoring an acre of Manitoba farmland, your support of MCC food projects multiplies to provide emergency food assistance and long-term food security around the world.
You can join our community of local growers by sponsoring an acre right now! Is a $350 acre more or less than you can give? We encourage giving multiple or partial acres too. Give to Grow Hope now
Or you can start an online Grow Hope Giving Registry and invite your church, family or friends to amplify your impact! Get started on your Giving Registry or contact us at 204-261-6381 or GrowHope@mccmb.ca for help with setting up your registry.
We'll send you exclusive Grow Hope updates and connect you with the larger Grow Hope community throughout the growing season.
How your support can Grow Hope
As a Grow Hope supporter, you’ll join our community of local growers helping to transform the lives of people like Botiram and Manki in India. For many years this couple farmed a small plot of land, but it was never very fruitful. Deforestation and industrial agriculture made it hard for many families in the region to provide for themselves. Manki says they didn't have enough food to feed their whole family.

“Thanks to these new farming techniques, I see the joy every morning.” - Botiram (farmer in India)
Through the gifts of Grow Hope supporters, MCC provided Botiram and Manki with agricultural training. They learned how to use the natural resources around them and have multiplied their rice and vegetable yields using the techniques that MCC's local partner taught them.
Today, they are able to feed their family and sell the surplus produce to support themselves. "Thanks to these new farming techniques, I see the joy every morning," says Botiram.
