Canadian Foodgrains Bank

In agriculture based economies, agriculture generates 29% of GDP and employs 65% of the overall workforce.

EFFICACY OF GDP GROWTH ORIGINATING IN AGRICULTURE

EFFICACY OF GDP GROWTH ORIGINATING IN AGRICULTURE

GDP growth originating in agriculture is at least twice as effective in reducing poverty as GDP growth originating outside agriculture.

Our goal is a world without hunger. We work toward this goal by: providing food in times of crisis 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.

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 2013-2014, we helped 1.3 million people in 42 countries. Foodgrains Bank programs are implemented by our member agencies in the developing world. Read our most recent annual report or our most recent audited financial statements.

We are a partnership of 15 church and church-based agencies working together
to end global hunger. Together, these churches and church-based agencies
represent 30 denominations.
