Canadian Foodgrains Bank

Canadian Foodgrains Bank has always partnered with World Renew to fight hunger. Today, that looks like matching every gift you give to World Renew through the Foodgrains Bank up to 4 times. Thanks to you and the Foodgrains Bank, we are changing the story of hunger for good.

Your gift through World Renew to the Canadian Foodgrains Bank will be matched up to 4x! 

Church Engagement

Through Canadian Foodgrains Bank Sunday and additional giving year-round, churches across a wide range of denominations generously donate to provide World Renew with immediate access to emergency funds for international disasters. In addition, many rural and urban churches fund World Renew growing projects with Foodgrains Bank. All your gifts are eligible to be matched through Canadian Foodgrains Bank.

Growing Projects

Through community growing projects, farmers work together to plant, tend and harvest their crops, giving the proceeds of the sale to World Renew’s account at Canadian Foodgrains Bank. Funds raised through these acres of land are then matched through the Foodgrains Bank.

Individual Donations

People like you match their regular donations to World Renew with Canadian Foodgrains Bank by making ongoing contributions through their church or the World Renew website. When you give online, your gift goes toward World Renew’s general fund to be used for the most pressing need, including international disaster response and ongoing community development work in a specific country.

World Renew is a founding member of Canadian Foodgrains Bank. That means the Foodgrains Bank supports World Renew by collecting grain and cash donations, provides funds and expert advice on projects, and supports World Renew and our partners in the purchasing and distribution of food aid. Since 1983 World Renew’s capacity to provide disaster response and rehabilitation programs on a global scale has grown directly through our partnership with the Foodgrains Bank and the generosity of your gifts. Here’s how:

  • We receive gifts from individuals, churches, communities, and businesses to our Canadian Foodgrains Bank account.
  • All these gifts are matched by Global Affairs Canada, up to 4:1.
  • Gifts given to World Renew’s account for all projects are available for immediate use.
  • If World Renew is unable to respond to a particular need, we can contribute funds from our account to any of the 15 different Christian member organizations at the Foodgrains Bank who are responding to that need.

Thanks to you, World Renew and Canadian Foodgrains Bank have programed $9.9 million to respond to crises around the world and support large-scale projects in Syria, Lebanon, Nigeria, and Bangladesh. Through you, we have brought the love of Christ and the hope of food security to millions of people. Discover for yourself the stories of where hunger tastes hope.
