FOODS RESOURCE BANK
Each year St Johns UCC and local farmers partner with Columbia United Church of Christ and in Kansas City. Seeds are purchased and local farmers grow crops. When the harvest is gathered the proceeds from the crop go to support agricultural development, equipment, and training in developing countries.
In 2011, our 8th year of participation, our growing project is a double crop of beans which have been planted on land donated by Linda Burnett located the west of Route 5 near the church. In 2010, over $12,000 was sent to the Central African Republic for agricultural development and training.
FRB’s mission is to alleviate world hunger by globally connecting local communities through agriculture. FRB empowers people to support food security by combining funding and awareness. FRB is creating a global community of people connected through agriculture. Learn more at www.foodsresourcebank.org
