Food Resource Bank

John Kube, Laura Kube and Marv Baldwin
Food 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 over $3 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: our 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 us grow and expand our work. By 2023 we hope to reach the next 1 million people through our programs. 
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. We see agriculture as the solution to hunger experienced in much of the world.
In Hancock County Elanco, IMI, and Cherry Farms all particpate in FRB.  Some of the participation inclues employee farm markets and employee gardens.  Part of this also support the local Soup Kitchen.
