Grow Hope Alberta
Grow Hope Alberta

MCC Alberta partners with Canadian Foodgrains Bank (CFGB) and Alberta farmers to help support MCC food programs worldwide.

Grow Hope aims to bring emergency and long-term food security to the most vulnerable people.

 
Every year, MCC partners with local farmers, Canadian Foodgrains Bank (CFGB), the Government of Canada, and compassionate people like you, to Grow and sell crops, in order to:
 
  • Alleviate hunger
  • Improve nutrition
  • Build farmer resilience against climate change
  • Increase yields and strengthen income
  • Empower women
  • Improve family wellbeing
 

Today, over 860 million people are suffering from severe food insecurity due to conflict, inequality, geography, poverty, and climate change.
 

In October 2020, the World Bank estimated that between 88 and 115 million MORE vulnerable people would be pushed into extreme poverty due to COVID-19.
 

But YOU can help!
 

You can transform the lives of families like the Kashyap family from Bastar District, India:
 

 

Ways to get involved:

 

Sponsor acre(s).

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 $300 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. 

We know that God has blessed us greatly in Canada, and He has called us all to come to the aid of the less fortunate. It’s a privilege to be able to help others. Grow Hope is an amazing way for people to come alongside other local farmers to Grow Hope for those that need our help.
