Founded in 1983, Canadian Foodgrains Bank is a partnership of 15 churches and church agencies representing 30 Christian denominations, all working together to end global hunger. With support from the Government of Canada, in 2015-16 we provided over $43 million of assistance for over one million people in 40 countries.
Now in its sixth year, the war in Syria continues to be one of the world’s largest humanitarian disasters. Since 2012 the Foodgrains Bank has provided over $30 million of assistance for people affected by the war in Syria—refugees in Jordan and Lebanon, and for people displaced in Syria itself. Currently, we are providing food for over 73,000 people through programs worth $8.7 million.
