“Feeding the world, caring for the earth”
The UN General Assembly designated 2014 the “International Year of Family Farming.”
On behalf of Mennonite Brethren churches and more than 15 other denominations, the Canadian Foodgrains Bank helps build food security.
Last year, the Foodgrains Bank spent more than $11 million on agriculture and livelihood programs: teaching farmers new methods of soil preservation, supplying tools, improving water access and organizing collectives to help families have more stable access to food and employment.
“Because of the service by which you have proved yourselves, others will praise God for the obedience that accompanies your confession of the gospel of Christ, and for your generosity in sharing with them and with everyone else.“—2 Corinthians 9:13
