Foods Resource Bank (FRB) raises money to help people in developing countries grow their own food. Each year more than 200 U.S. growing projects, volunteers, companies, and organizations raise $3.5-4 million to support 50-60 overseas programs. To administer these programs, FRB works through a network of 16 member organizations and local partner organizations in more than 29 countries around the world.

Reaching the next 1 million: In 2014, FRB celebrated two exciting milestones: their 15 year anniversary and reaching more than 1,000,000 people through sustainable food security programs In looking forward, FRB set a large goal to help them grow and expand their work. By 2023 they hope to reach the next 1 million people through our programs. Visit this page to learn more about this goal and how you can help!

What they do: FRB engages volunteers to raise money for 50+ overseas programs a year. All of the programs focus on developing small-holder agriculture, often in the most remote and poorest regions of the world. They see agriculture as the solution to hunger experienced in much of the world.
