Canadian Foodgrains Bank

End World Hunger

“for I was hungry and you gave me food, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you welcomed me…”

TSA is a supporter of the Canadian Foodgrains Bank, an organization of 15 major churches and church agencies from across Canada. Our goal is a world without hunger.

We work toward this goal by: providing food in times of crisis (such as drought or flooding)  for hungry people in the developing world; helping people grow more food to better feed themselves and their families; and providing nutritional support to malnourished people with a focus on pregnant and breastfeeding mothers and young children.

Some projects respond to food insecurity due to armed violence and forced migration.

We also advocate for public policies that enable families and communities to better feed themselves, and look for ways to engage and educate Canadians about global hunger.

In 2016-17, CFGB helped over 900,000 people in 35 countries.

The Government of Canada has supported the Foodgrains Bank since it began in 1983. Today, the Canadian Foodgrains Bank is one of two primary channels for the Government of Canada’s funding for food assistance.
