CFFO & Foodgrains Bank - A Natural Fit
“I really believe this partnership with the Foodgrains Bank is one of the best examples of charitable giving we can do as Christian farmers.”
Ed Scharringa, CFFO Board of Directors President
Thanks for helping people around the world get enough to eat!
In 2021, $33,110 was donated by the generous CFFO community. In response, the Christian Farmers Federation of Ontario increased their match to $15,000, bringing the total contribution of this campaign to $48,110!
We’re excited about what we can achieve through this Giving Tuesday partnership in 2022. Thank you so much for caring about people facing hunger around the world.
The CFFO Giving Tuesday Campaign
To kick off the partnership between CFFO and Canadian Foodgrains Bank, CFFO is going to be matching every dollar donated between November 29 and December 29, 2022, up to $10,000. This CFFO Giving Tuesday campaign will kick off the 2022 Christmas giving season with a joyous bang!
In 2022, the global hunger crisis became increasingly worse in many places. There are currently an estimated 828 million people experiencing hunger, up from 768 million in 2021, and we know those numbers are rising. There are countries in the Horn of Africa where it is becoming increasingly difficult to access adequate, affordable food, and famine is fast approaching.
But despite the challenges our global food system is facing, we also know that with generous people like you on board, we can help families facing hunger to thrive.
Our mission to end world hunger is rooted in the belief that humankind is created in the image of God, and that it is God’s desire that no person should go hungry.
Canadian Foodgrains Bank is a partnership of 15 churches and church agencies working together to end hunger. We work with locally-based organizations in developing countries to meet emergency food needs, achieve long-term solutions to hunger and work to foster informed action by Canadians and governments to support this international cause.
If you support one of our 15 members, you can deposit your donation into their account, otherwise it will automatically be deposited into our general account which is shared amongst our membership.
We’re excited to partner with Christian Farmers Federation of Ontario (CFFO) in working towards this mission.
Thank you for your support!
