Support from Canadians
In 2020-21, individual Canadians, community groups, growing projects, businesses and churches helped raise over $15 million, touching the lives of 989,000 people. We are grateful for the many ways Canadians continued to show their care and support for their global neighbours during this year of upheaval for so many. As well as financial donations, this also included support from those who wrote letters and met with MPs to express their support for ending global hunger.
Support from businesses and corporations
We are grateful for the continued support of many businesses, both big and small across Canada. These include major supporters such as AdFarm, AFSC, BASF Canada, Bayer Crop Science, Cargill, Corteva Agriscience, Farm Ontario, Glacier Media, Manitoba Agricultural Services Corporation, Pioneer Hi-Bred Ltd, Syngenta Canada, Yara and Viterra.
Each year, we work with the grain handling industry to accept donations of grain at grain elevators across Canada. We acknowledge the ongoing support of the following grain companies that receive donations on our behalf: Bunge, Cargill, CMI Terminal, Great Lakes Grain, Hensall District Co-operative, Kell Grain, London Agricultural Commodities, Louis Dreyfus Company, Parrish and Heimbecker Limited, Paterson Grain, Richardson Pioneer, Viterra, Westlock Terminals Ltd, and other grain elevators across Canada.
