“Growing local to feed global.”

Once again, St. Peter’s will be participating in the Diocesan Grow Hope project for 2022. As a parish we have been leaders in raising “bushels of hope” through our fundraising efforts.We support Fred’s input costs (approximately $300 per acre); Fred and his family do all the work, sell the soybeans, and donate the proceeds to PWRDF through the Canadian Food Grains Bank (CfGB).

PWRDF will use the funds to support a project in Kenya, helping to provide lifesaving food assistance for 3,000 households (15,000 people) in drought devastated areas. As a Grow Hope partner, St. Peter’s will be helping feed hungry people, growing hope among the most vulnerable in the world!

Continue to monitor the grain elevator above where our fundraising progress will be recorded. In each year of the Grow Hope project, St. Peter’s has raised about $2,000. Can we match or exceed this goal for 2022?
