On June 20 2014, Hollace Sherwood went home to be with the Lord. He and his wife Ila started the Hunger Relief 'Corn Project' effort in 1985 after reading about famine in Ethiopia.
was active with the corn project for nearly twenty years, but even
after a debilitating stroke limited his strength, and the death of his
beloved Ila, the project has continued with the
help of volunteers and financial assistance from individuals and churches everywhere, and has provided corn to hungry people all over the world.

Hunger Relief Project
What is the "Bryantsville Hunger Relief Project"?
Bryantsville Hunger Relief
Project exists to help provide food to the “poorest of the
poor” people in third world or disaster-ravaged countries by
supplying corn for distribution by various relief
The corn is grown on Rosehill
Farm in Bryantsville, Indiana.
Because of limited storage space for bagged corn, the corn must remain in the grain bin until a definite destination is contracted and planned. Only then can the corn be bagged and a load made ready for pickup.
Some of the relief agencies we have partnered with include:“Feed The Children”, "Feed The Hungry", “World Gospel Outreach”, and “Lifeline”. Much of the corn sent out recently has gone to locations in El Salvador and Honduras, to areas devastated by Hurricane Mitch. Central America has been hit hard by earthquakes, hurricanes, and drought in the last few years.
Please consider the ways you or your organization can help
support the Bryantsville Hunger Relief Project.
Financial gifts of any size are welcome, and are combined with other gifts to help pay for the corn and make it available to relief organizations. Normally, BHRP provides the corn free to relief organizations if they will arrange and pay for the shipping.
Most important, please pray for Bryantsville Hunger Relief Project, for the safety and efficiency of all those involved in providing corn to hungry people.
