How Your Organization Can Host a Challenge that Makes a Difference
We all want to make a difference. But sometimes the world is such an overwhelming place that we don’t even know where to begin. That’s why we created the Beans & Rice Challenge.
A few years ago, we recognized that people have a desire to better understand and help the hungry and hurting in this world. People want the opportunity to be the hands and feet of Christ. They just need tools to show them how to make a difference.
With the Beans & Rice Challenge, participants spend five days forgoing at least one of their typical meals to partake of beans and rice instead. Doing this is a reminder that not everyone around the world has a stocked pantry or access to food options.
At the end of the challenge, participants tally up how much they spent on beans and rice, subtract that total from a typical weekly food bill and donate their savings to Feeding The Nations, so we can provide food to those who most need it around the world.
Just $1 can provide 20 meals for people in need. So, at the end of these five days, participants have been able to make a difference in the world without even leaving their kitchens.
While we have undertaken an annual Beans & Rice Challenge for the past few years, we are now offering the opportunity for anyone (a group, organization, church, school, etc.) to host their own challenge. This is a chance for people to cheer on one another, while drawing attention to the needs of the hungry and supporting them through donations.
If you would like to host your own challenge, we can help! Simply contact us via the form below and let us know about your interest. We will be happy to speak more about it with you and supply you with a media kit to help you spread the word and get others to join your challenge.
The media kit includes:
- A month’s worth of social media posts to promote the event
- Official Beans & Rice Challenge Logo
- Pictures branded and formatted for social media use

- Links to blog posts
- Copy for email marketing campaign
Hosting a challenge is simple. And it has the potential of making a lasting impact on the lives of the least of these. If you’re ready to be the hands and feet of Christ, to offer food and hope to the hungry and hurting, to challenge people around you to make a difference, then contact us today.
