In 1976, amid growing world food emergencies, Mennonite Central Committee created a pilot project to allow Canadian grain farmers to share their harvests with those less fortunate around the world. In 1983, the project was re-organized, opened to other church agencies, and re-established as the Canadian Foodgrains Bank.
The Canadian Foodgrains Bank was formed in time to make a significant contribution to fighting the Ethiopia famine in 1984.
Today, we are fighting global hunger in over 40 countries around the world.
15 church agencies, representing 30 denominations with over 17,000 congregations, make up the membership of Canadian Foodgrains Bank.
