Twin Rivers – Barrington Growing Hope Globally Project
Growing Hope Globally partners Trinity with the LaSalle County Soil and Water Conservation District and its farmers, Barrington United Methodist Church, and many individuals. Our purpose is to raise money to help people in the very hungry places of the world improve their agriculture and food production. Growing Hope estimates that there are over 815 million hungry people in the world – only about 2% of those are in the United States.
In 2018’s crop year $41,654 supported food production programs in the communities of Nicaragua-Carazo and Conquista. In 2019’s crop year $19, 260.00 was donated to these communities as well. This money was earned as some LaSalle County farmers donated the income from some acres of corn and soybeans. The non-farming partners donated money to cover the farmers’ production costs on those acres.
