Food should not be a luxury but over the last three years, a worrying trend has developed along with increased conflict, hunger is on the rise. Conflict in countries like Syria, Yemen, Myanmar, and Venezuela has left millions hungry. In search of safety, parents and children have left their homes. With few opportunities for employment, many are unable to afford enough food for their families. The enormity of their need is heartbreaking. The Canada Foodgrains Bank (CFGB) provides emergency food for people who are hungry because of things like war, drought, and unfair international trade policies. And there is hope as many people experience whole-person transformation when they encounter God’s love through your prayers for the hungry and your financial support of the CFGB.
An offering for Canada Foodgrains Bank will take place on March 29, but your gifts are welcome anytime this month. Donations are matched 4 – 1 by the Canadian Government. Write CFGB on the memo line of your cheque or envelope.
