For the sixth year straight, Canadian Foodgrains Bank has been awarded Top 10 Impact Charity status by Charity Intelligence.
In the 2022-2023 fiscal year, Foodgrains Bank committed to serve over one million people (1,103,795) experiencing hunger in 36 countries through 15 member agencies who work with numerous locally-based partners. These 126 projects included funding for humanitarian assistance, nutrition, and longer-term development work.
“Being named a Top 10 Impact Charity for the sixth consecutive year says a lot about the quality of the work being done,” says Foodgrains Bank executive director Andy Harrington.
“We’re pleased to be acknowledged once again, as it affirms our commitment to being good stewards of the donations entrusted to us by our compassionate supporters, as well as showing how those dollars are being used to end global hunger.
“Foodgrains Bank has always made transparency in our programming, effectiveness and financial accountability a core principle of the way that we operate, and we are grateful to see this reflected in the Top 10 Impact Charity 2023 results.”
The work of the Foodgrains Bank includes provision of humanitarian assistance (delivering emergency food assistance for people in times of crises and disasters), as well as long-term support for families, including agricultural training and critical nutrition support.
“As we continue on our mission of ending hunger, especially in the midst of the ongoing global hunger crisis, we hope more Canadians will join us,” says Harrington.
Canadian Foodgrains Bank has been committed to working towards a world without hunger for 40 years. In 1983, the organization was started in the Prairies by farmers concerned about global hunger, and now includes supporters from British Columbia to Newfoundland and Labrador.
