Viterra and Food Grains bank partner to fight world hunger


Viterra and the Canadian Foodgrains Bank say 2020 was another successful year of working together to fight world hunger.

296 acres across six Viterra terminals in Saskatchewan and Alberta were seeded and farmed by local volunteer farmers this year, with the proceeds of the sale going to help hungry people around the world through the Foodgrains bank.

This is the fourth year of a partnership between Viterra and the charitable group.

Examples of projects providing emergency food to people include the Lebanon explosion, and helping small-scale farmers in Kenya grow more food for their families.

Each project is a little different.

For example, a project in Raymore is headed up by a local hutterite colony.

In Balgonie, a local farm family tends the acres.

Other projects are a full community event.
