builds community in the U.S. by uniting people and resources in new and visible ways to sustainable food security in the world's poorest communities. The United Methodist Men at Fairfax, MO offered 4 Growing Projects (10 A of corn, 10 A of beans, a heifer, and a lamb) as our response with FRB to help people help themselves.
The Fairfax Methodist Men's purpose is to help hungry people to know the dignity and pride of feeding themselves and their families, and to produce excess food to share, barter or sell in order to purchase basic medicines and staples, send all their children to school and dig wells; because we believe whatever we can accomplish for the least of these brothers and sisters we have done it for Jesus.
The money from the sales of our Growing Projects went through FRB's outreach to support the creation of sustainable smallholder food production, systems involving training and locally help to acquired or construct water wells, reservoirs, drip irrigation, and whatever can be done to help hungry villagers in needy parts of the world produce their own food.
Our current FRB Growing Projects: We have blessed ground for 60 A of corn and beans to be sold for FRB. We have received help in gifts of ground, machinery, seed, chemicals and donations of money (any and all donations will be cheerfully received as charitable donations). Our goal is to have all 60 acres paid for before harvest so that our net gift fo FRB will be as large as possible. We could use your gifts for this great project.
