Church of the Brethren - GFI

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

GFI 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.

Your support of the Global Food Initiative 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.”
