Catholic Relief Services carries out the commitment of the Bishops of the United States to assist the poor and vulnerable overseas. As part of the universal mission of the Catholic Church, we work with local, national and international Catholic institutions and structures, as well as other organizations, to assist people on the basis of need, not creed, race or nationality.
Do you have the spirit to serve? Catholic Relief Services would like to help you put your faith into action and create a better world.
Feeding a World: Farmer-to-Farmer
Quite simply, the Farmer-to-Farmer (F2F) Program feeds people all across the world. The F2F Program promotes sustainable economic growth, food security and agricultural development. Volunteers work with farmers, producer groups and rural businesses to develop the local capacity necessary to increase food production and rural incomes, expand economic growth and address environmental and natural resource management challenges.
If you are interested in volunteering part-time within your diocese, please contact your local diocesan director.
In addition, there are many ways to get involved with CRS' mission right in your own community. Please visit the Get Involved section of our website for more information about getting involved in our programs and activities.
Catholic Volunteer Network is an excellent resource that helps to connect prospective volunteers or lay missioners with Christian faith-based member volunteer programs that place individuals into full-time service opportunities for periods of time ranging from one week to three years or longer.
Catholic Volunteer Network has two great resources available through its web site: The Response Directory of Volunteer Opportunities and the Volunteer Profile.
The Response Directory, available online and in hard copy, has information about nearly 200 volunteer programs.
