Sponsor an acre of land for food relief and agricultural development projects overseas.

What are the needs?

As numbers for the globally hungry have steadily risen since 2014, tens of millions have joined the ranks of the chronically undernourished. Countries around the world continue to struggle with multiple forms of malnutrition.

There are many reasons for this growing catastrophe. High food costs mean billions cannot afford nutritious meals. The COVID-19 pandemic may have lead to over 800 million people facing chronic hunger by the end of 2020 (according to the State of Food Security and Nutrition in the World 2020 report); the reporting systems were interrupted by the pandemic, but the projections suggest a dramatic increase in world hunger, as expected, and 2021 did not improve.

What can be done to help?

For more than 30 years, Canadian farmers have been working to end global hunger through the Canadian Foodgrains Bank (CFGB). You, too, can become a virtual ‘Farmer’ by sponsoring an acre of land through the Grow Hope project. CFGB also helps farmers around the world learn to produce more reliable crops by promoting sustainable farming practices.

How will your raised funds be used?

Your support helps to buy seeds and inputs for the growing season. A Canadian farmer will use your seed money to grow a crop on an acre of land alongside their own. At harvest time, the farmer will sell the crop produced on your acre and donate 100% of the proceeds to the CBM account at the Canadian Foodgrains Bank. Your gift is then multiplied according to a 4:1 matching program through the Government of Canada, which is used to support emergency food aid in places like Lebanon, South Sudan, and Latin America.
