 Fellowship/s Special Offering this week will support the Loaves & Fishes Growing Project of South Simcoe County (L&F). The L&F project grows crops wherein farmers donate land and labour, and donations from churches, individuals and agribusinesses pay for the inputs. For every $1 donated to L&F, we produce about $2.50 profit from crops. This profit is then sent to the Canadian Foodgrains Bank (CFGB) where it is further multiplied by matching government grants (up to 4:1). CFGB is a partnership of Canadian churches and church-based agencies that work to support international programs and increase the involvement of Canadians in reducing global hunger on an immediate and sustainable basis. World Renew, being one of the CFGB member agencies, accesses funds from the CFGB for its food assistance programs. This year, the L&F project is growing 106 acres of crops for CFGB. Winter wheat has already been harvested; soybeans and corn will be harvested this fall. Please pray for a good harvest.
