Growing projects are when a community of farmers come together to join the mission of ending global hunger. Some may donate land, others plant, some people may fundraise for inputs and another group may harvest. And together a community is grown to support people around the world you may never meet, but whose well-being you have helped.
During a time of crisis, such as a violent conflict or flood, Canadian Foodgrains Bank helps people get food, sometimes by buying from local suppliers or even supplying vouchers for local stores. In places with more stability, long-term projects, such as training small-scale farmers on how to improve their yields while dealing with erratic weather, help improve livelihoods.
From British Columbia all the way across the country to Newfoundland and Labrador, it’s because of people who choose to share their harvest with the world that we’re able to help people who are living with hunger.
