The Canadian Foodgrains Bank is a unique partnership of 15 churches and church agencies that pool their resources together to provide food assistance and agricultural and livelihoods training to the families experiencing hunger, poverty, and disaster.
The need for funds remains great for World Renew’s account at the Foodgrains Bank, due to ongoing crises in places like Syria, as well as the widespread impact of El Nino. As a community of believers, we pray for peace and restoration, work concretely to offer hope with food assistance, and trust in God to help all of his children thrive.
March 5, 2017 is CFGB Sunday for churches in Canada. World Renew invites you to join us in ending hunger by holding a special service in your church.
