Foods Resource Bank

Foods Resource Bank, a Christian Response to World Hunger, is a partnership of farmers and churches to provide support for sustainable growing efforts in some of the poorest countries of the world.

 

St. John's Lutheran Church is a partner with a group of local farmers and more than 20 other rural and suburban churches in supporting the Foods Resource Bank Somonauk Area Growing Project.

 

Each fall, we gather with our partner farmers and churches, and along with the farmers and churches from the Earlville and Ottawa-Barrington Growing Projects, to celebrate the harvest. Generally 400 or more people from the communities gather to participate in a common worship service, learn about agricultural practices, raise money through raffles and pie auctions, and have a meal together. The 2015 Harvest Celebration is at the Rosengren Farm, 3832 East 1925th Road, Ottawa (just north of U. S. Highway 52), on Saturday, October 17, and begins with a worship service at 10 a.m. 

 

Getting Involved

The people of St. John's get involved with Foods Resource Bank through financial contributions, through assisting with the planning and presenting of the annual harvest celebration, and by attending the celebration.
