The Foods Resource Bank is a Christian, non-profit ecumenical organization committed to fighting hunger overseas. Encourages faith-based groups to support agricultural, growing projects around the world to help the poor develop sustainable, small-scale agriculture production.
Through the CRS and FRB partnership, farmers can donate a portion of their land to a special program for one year, and contributing the proceeds from the crops harvested to this program. These proceeds are then used by CRS and FRB to fund overseas agricultural development programs that provide critical farming supplies for struggling farmers and communities in Africa, Asia, and Latin America.
This program has recruited Iowa farmers who are helping crop and livestock farmers to better manage natural resources and improve their farming techniques.
