Canadian Foodgrains Bank


The goal of the Canadian Foodgrains Bank is a world without hunger.

Each year the Canadian Foodgrains Bank works to end hunger in about 40 countries around the world.  All of their international projects fall within three categories:


Food Assistance: Food assistance projects help people who are hungry because of crisis situations like war, droughts, or floods.

Agriculture and livelihoods: Agriculture and livelihoods programs focus on helping people provide food for themselves and their families in the longer term. We work with farmers to increase their yields through sustainable agriculture practices, and help people generate more income from what they grow.

Nutrition: Our nutrition projects reduce malnutrition in families through nutrition education, provision of clean water, and special feeding programs. We give priority to pregnant and nursing mothers and children under the age of five.

Canadian Foodgrains Bank has a funding agreement with the Canadian Government that provides them with up to 4:1 matching grants up to a maximum of $25 million a year.  For every dollar you donate, it instantly becomes up to $5!
