Canadian Foodgrain's Bank Has Slow Harvest

The Canadian Foodgrain’s Bank is a partnership of 15 Canadian churches and agencies that work together to end global hunger.
 
Saskatchewan’s participation and donations play a key role in the group’s mandate.
 
Rick Block, the Saskatchewan Coordinator, says Community Growing Projects play a major role, since the money raised from the sale of the crop is donated to the group.
 
“We really are in all of the areas of the agricultural part of the province. There’s 32 project sites this year and close to 3500 acres that are committed to the Foodgrain’s Bank this year. Some of them have been harvested and many of them are still out in the field which is fairly indicative of where most farmers are at as well.”
