To break the cycle of poverty by feeding the hungry and helping those in trouble

We want to invest into ideas and projects that will bring food sustainability and not a quick fix that will only last a few weeks or months.

Our History

Grain of Hope was started in a small room in the back of a church with 19 kids. No one knew that day what this would become and how crazy a ride it has been. Grain of Hope grew from 19 kids in March of 2009 to a nationwide non-profit. In 2012 Grain of Hope applied for and received its official 501(c)(3) non-profit status. In December of 2015 Grain of Hope took another huge step by hiring a full time executive director. Through it all, we have always believed that no matter how small you are, you can make a huge difference if you really go after it with all that you are. Will you join us and help us write the next chapter in our history, a history built on the little bit, big bit theory? The little bit, big bit theory says that if you take your little bit, and he takes his little bit and I take my little bit and put it all together we come up with a pretty big bit.
