At Canadian Foodgrains Bank, our vision is a world without hunger.
We are constantly humbled at the compassion and generosity of Canadians who are so willing to help those who are hungry overseas.
Each year, Canadians across the country come together to help us realize our vision. Churches, communities, businesses and individuals all support the Foodgrains Bank, donating time and money to help us work toward a world without hunger.
Much of our support comes from Canadian farmers who come together to plant, tend and harvest a crop. Once harvested, they sell the crop and donate the proceeds to our work in ending global hunger.
In Ontario, there are over 100 growing projects. Growing projects happen when groups of farmers and farm supporters, often with the help of a local church, come together to plant and tend a crop, donating the proceeds from the sale of the crop to the Foodgrains Bank for use in the work of responding to global hunger.
During the #12days4good campaign, we will be highlighting and thanking such volunteers who are working toward a world without hunger. As well, our staff will participate by doing good deeds in their local communities in Ontario and across Canada.
