2018 marks 35 years of Canadian Foodgrains Bank member churches and church agencies working together to end hunger.
The Foodgrains Bank was created in 1983 as a way for Canadian farmers, people who work in the agricultural sector, and other Canadians to respond to the needs of people around the world who don’t have enough to eat. The Foodgrains Bank emerged out of the Mennonite Central Committee Food Bank that had been created in 1975.
Today, we have 15 member churches and church-based agencies, representing 30 Canadian denominations, all united in the belief that God doesn’t want anyone to be hungry.
