SPRING OUTREACH INITIATIVE 2021

For the poor will never cease to be in the land; therefore I command you, saying, ‘You shall freely open your hand to your brother, to your needy and poor in your land.’

Deuteronomy 15:11


In the United States and Canada, approx. 40,000,000 people, including 12,000,000 children, live in a food-insecure household.1

The Grow2Give initiative aims to inspire families and children to learn about God and nature, the value of food grown in the earth, and our responsibility to provide food for the hungry. There is much we can do to help those who hunger. Showing our children they too have a role to play and can make a positive difference in the lives of people is an important step towards developing a spirit of love and compassion.

Thank you for choosing to participate in Grow2Give! We’re thrilled to be able to offer your family this unique opportunity to find amazement in the natural food God has blessed us with. This is a wonderful time to teach children, regardless of their age, that they do and can have an important part to play in helping people in need. By helping provide for those in need, with your guidance, they will be encouraged and inspired to seek out new opportunities to show compassion.

There are several ways for you and your family to participate!
Choose the one that works best for you! All include a downloadable children’s activity booklet.
