Help end hunger around the world this Christmas!

Christmas is a time for giving and receiving gifts. As you think of the gifts you will give and receive, why not also give the gift of food to someone who doesn’t have enough to eat in the developing world?

For $15, you can provide a month’s worth of food for one person in an emergency situation in sub-Saharan Africa; $75 will feed a family of five for the same amount of time.

You can also buy food on behalf of others on your Christmas list, giving the gift of food in their names. Gift acknowledgement cards are available; see information below.

Gifts you can give are:

  • A gift of $15 provides a food ration for one person for a month.
  • A gift of $75 provides food rations for a family of five for a month.
  • A gift of any amount will be used by the Foodgrains Bank to provide food for those who don’t have enough to eat.

(A food ration consists of cereals, pulses and oil; the price includes the cost of food, delivery and field/staff support.)

Go to our secure online donation page to make a donation for your gift! All donations for Christmas gifts of food rations are tax deductible. You can also call 1.877.665.0377 or mail a cheque to Box 767, Winnipeg, MB R3C 2L4.

Gift Cards

If you would like to give a gift of food in the name of someone else, we can provide you with a gift card to send or give to them.

You can download and print cards to give to people on your Christmas list. Click on the card that matches your gift:

A card that indicates an unspecified amount has been given on someone’s behalf to the Foodgrains Bank.

If you would like us to send you printed cards, contact Stephanie Ball at sball@foodgrainsbank.ca. Please provide your mailing address. Note: To receive printed cards in time for Christmas, please order them by December 10th.

Thanks for sharing the gift of food this Christmas!
