Global Food Crisis Fund
The Global Food Crisis Fund (GFCF) is the primary way that the Church of the Brethren assists hungry people in developing food security. Since 1983, GFCF has raised over $8,000,000 for community development projects in numerous countries around the globe.

GFCF seeks to:
- invest in small-scale economic development
- join efforts to improve diet and health practices
- champion soil conservation
- promote awareness-raising and advocacy on hunger issues.
This work is made possible through your contributions. We encourage you to participate with us by:
- praying that those who are hungry may have food
- giving an individual contribution
- participating in our ongoing "My 2¢ Worth" fundraiser (contact GFCF for questions or materials)
- taking an offering for GFCF at your congregation or camp
- giving a one-time donation or memorial in honor of a loved one.
Your support of the Global Food Crisis Fund upholds the biblical command to lift the burden of the oppressed. Moreover it honors God, for as stated in Proverbs 14:31, “Kindness shown to the poor is an act of worship.”
