GROW HOPE MARKDALE

Is a new opportunity to be involved with us in ending global hunger. Grow Hope growing projects support our work through Canadian Foodgrains Bank.

 

Grow Hope donations pay for a farmer here in Canada to plant a field, care for the field, and harvest the crop. The proceeds from the crop go to Canadian Foodgrains Bank where they are matched 4:1 by the government of Canada. (for most food assistance projects).

 

The Grow Hope Markdale project is a partnership of the Markdale Church of the Nazarene, NCM Canada and CFGB and is located at 794854 East Back Line, just east of Markdale. The Goudy family farm the land. This year's crop is soybeans.

 

You can sponsor the cost for an acre*, part of an acre, or just choose to make a donation. Cost to sponsor one acre $375, half acre $187, 1/10th acre $37.50. Any gift you choose to give is gratefully accepted.

 

*An acre is about the size of a soccer field.

 

This years crop is expected to yield $500 per acre (likely more) which when matched 4:1 becomes $2500 to feed hungry people in our world!
