Canadian Foodgrains Bank
Many churches are seeing increasing need at their meal centres and foodbanks. Yet, for the majority of people living in Canada, they are able to find food in regular abundance, with a variety of choices, all readily accessible. This is not the case in many places around the world where people have staple foods which they typically eat frequently – everyday or even for every meal, and especially for people in crisis who are eating meals prepared from emergency food rations. This resource includes prayers and ideas for hosting a ration meal event. Download 2023 World Food Day worship resource.
