Your Time to a Foodgrains Bank Activity in Your Area
There are several ways to take part in a Foodgrains Bank project. The limits of imagination are the only constraints on creating a new project idea.
The most common way to donate time to a Foodgrains Bank project is to take part in a local community growing project. Growing projects raise more than donations of grain as people build friendships and gain a greater understanding among themselves.

In many cases, urban churches without access to land can be paired to a rural church that has land and machinery but could use help in buying crop inputs. These joint initiatives are very successful and help build bridges between the congregations.
Another valuable way to contribute to the Foodgrains Bank is to organize a simple letter-writing event to promote our annual Harvest of Letters campaign. These campaigns are supported by people in the Food Justice Network . They are intended to build relations with elected officials and to promote positive changes in policies with the goal of ending hunger.
The Canadian Foodgrains Bank accepts "in kind" support from a variety of people and resources. If your workplace or community would like to volunteer their time, contact the Foodgrains Bank head office at 1-800-665-0377 or any of the local coordinators for more information.
