Foods Resource Bank (FRB) works on behalf of its member organizations - 15 of the mainline Christian denominations or their agencies - to mobilize and increase the resources needed to support food security programs in some of the world's poorest villages. In the U.S., community "growing projects" raise a crop or other marketable resource, monetize it, and make the proceeds available to FRB. These financial resources are provided to the member organizations of FRB, who work with their partners worldwide to help communities to become self-sufficient and food-secure, producing enough to feed themselves and vulnerable individuals (AIDS orphans, the elderly, women and children), with extra to share, barter or sell to purchase basic medicines and staples, and send ALL their children to school.
