Partnership with the Government of Canada

Canadian Foodgrains Bank and the Government of Canada

Canadian Foodgrains Bank is grateful to partner with the Canadian Government to provide food assistance to people in the developing world.

The Government of Canada has supported the Foodgrains Bank since it began in 1983. Today, the Canadian Foodgrains Bank is  one of two primary channels for the Government of Canada’s funding for food assistance.

Through the Government of Canada’s support, the Foodgrains Bank’s 15 members are able to leverage donations on a four-to-one basis for food assistance in the developing world up to $25 million.

“We are very grateful to the Government of Canada for its generous support through Global Affairs Canada,” says Foodgrains Bank Executive Director Jim Cornelius.

“Our partnership with the Canadian government allows us to multiply donations generously given by Canadians, enabling us to assist many more people and communities.”
