World Renew is committed to ending global hunger, and our membership in the Canadian Foodgrains Bank (CFGB) makes it possible for us to reach even more hungry families. Last year, using matching funds from the Foodgrains Bank, World Renew reached out to the hungry in 13 countries, providing support to over 230,000 people!
The Canadian Foodgrains Bank is a unique partnership of 15 churches and church agencies that pool their resources together to provide food assistance and agricultural and livelihoods training to the families experiencing hunger, poverty, and disaster.
The need for funds remains great for World Renew’s account at the Foodgrains Bank, due to ongoing crises in places like Syria, as well as the widespread impact of El Nino. As a community of believers, we pray for peace and restoration, work concretely to offer hope with food assistance, and trust in God to help all of his children thrive.
World Renew invites you to join us in ending hunger by holding a special service in your church.
World Renew has CFGB Sunday resources available. Christian Reformed Churches in Canada have been sent print resources by mail, so please watch for the following materials in your church:
- a bookmark to place in church mailboxes to promote CFGB Sunday
- bulletin inserts/bulletin covers to use on CFGB Sunday
- a CFGB Sunday Newsletter with stories of people finding new hope through CFGB food assistance and livelihoods programs.
If you have any questions, or need additional materials, please feel free to contact World Renew at 1-800-730-3490 (Canada).
