Grow Hope aims to bring emergency and long-term food security to the most vulnerable people.
- Alleviate hunger
- Improve nutrition
- Build farmer resilience against climate change
- Increase yields and strengthen income
- Empower women
- Improve family wellbeing
According to the World Food Program, the number of people who are acutely food insecure or at high risk has soared to a record high of 345 million people in 2022, driven in large part by ripple effects from the conflict in Ukraine.
This is an increase of almost 200 million people compared to pre-pandemic levels.
But YOU can help!
You can transform the lives of families like the Kashyap family from Bastar District, India:
Ways to get involved:
Sponsor a quarter, a half, one, or multiple acres of Alberta farmland.
Tangibly sow seeds of hope that may be multiplied up to 4 times at the end of the harvesting season. One acre costs $350 to farm.
No matter the size of your gift, your support will GROW to give security and hope to women, children, and men suffering from severe hunger.
We'll keep you updated on the progress of the crops with monthly emails until the campaign ends in the fall.
Sponsor an acre
Spread seeds of hope.
Tell your friends, family, and community about Grow Hope! Word travels fast - with your help, the hope to end hunger can, too.
MCC Alberta partners with a group of Alberta farmers near the Crossfield and Sherwood Park areas to grow 300+ acres each year for Grow Hope.
