Curious to learn more about the work of the Canadian Foodgrains Bank?

~Debbie Hubbard

The Canadian Foodgrains Bank is one of Canada’s leading food assistance organizations. Its mission is to end global hunger by supporting projects submitted by their 15 member agencies and by influencing public policies necessary to end hunger in the world.

The United Church of Canada has been a long-standing member of the Foodgrains Bank. Here at First we have supported the work of the Foodgrains Bank through our donations to Mission and Service and by signing postcards advocating for an increase in international aid for food and agricultural programs.

On Thursday, June 25, we have an opportunity to participate in a webinar via Zoom that we and Trinity United Church in Vernon are co-hosting. It will be a 75 minute, online learning event with James Kornelsen, the Foodgrains Bank Public Engagement Coordinator.

James will share with us the important work the Foodgrains Bank does and how we as individuals and member churches can get involved. We will learn more about what the Foodgrains Bank does, the educational resources available to member churches and how you can incorporate these resources into worship services, study groups, Sunday schools and youth programs. Whether you are providing leadership in one of these Core Ministries or curious to learn more about, you are all welcome.

If you are interested in perhaps joining this event or need some more information please contact Debbie Hubbard at [email protected] or 250-469-4468. The webinar will be at either 10:00 a.m. or 1:00 p.m. on June 25.
