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.

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.
