Who we are
Owen Sound Harvest For Hunger is a project of Owen Sound Alliance Church. Harvest For Hunger encompasses pooled resources, both human and financial, working collaboratively together in a Christian response to global hunger. A donation of just $150, when matched by the Government will feed a family of five for a year in sub-Saharan Africa. Supported by the Foodgrains Bank and the Government of Canada, Harvest For Hunger, together with its gracious supporters, aims to end hunger in 40 countries around the world.
2021 Fundraising Results
Although we were unable to hold our main fundraising event once again due to Covid, we were still able to raise $31,419.86 to send to Canadian Foodgrains. This is amazing!!! The money raised is a combination of the sale of the crops, donations, and the support of our wonderful sponsors. A huge thank you to all that donated! Our sponsors continued and even increased their support through another difficult year, and we would ask that you support them and thank them if you have the opportunity…we are very grateful for their support.
This brings our total sent to Canadian Foodgrains to help feed those in need in just seven years to $199,636!! When matched 4:1 by the government, we are making a huge impact by providing food for those most in need. It looks like these funds will be going towards a food assistance project in Yemen, as well as an Agricultural and Livelihood project in Niger. Covid-19 has hit many of these developing countries extremely hard, making the need even greater at this time. Thank you for your part in helping to bless these people.
Please stay tuned for information on happenings in 2022. With restrictions being lifted and things slowly starting to return to normal, we are hopeful that we may once again be able to gather for an event.
As a supporter or volunteer, you can help us achieve our goals:
Our main goal is to help provide food for kids, parents and families that are in need.
This project helps to increase visibility for the work of Canadian Foodgrains Bank.
We’re able to build community in our rural neighbourhood by working together on a project!
We work together on this project with people who are not directly involved in primary production.
We now have the great opportunity to host an event that both entertains and educates the public!
Give Glory To God
Last but not least, Harvest For Hunger enables us all to give so much glory to God.
