Acute levels of hunger around the world are breaking records again this year, according to the Canadian Foodgrains Bank

Last week Thursday at the Buhler Active Living Centre, a Canadian Foodgrains Bank presentation by Program Manager Stefan Epp-Koop took place regarding the work of the organization, networking through 15 different church-based agencies, to end hunger around the world.

Epp-Koop explained the rising number of people experiencing acute hunger around the world is growing.

That was also a record, but it's up 40 million since then, and we expect it to continue to grow next year.
