CORNWALL -- Spring is just around the corner and it won't be long until volunteers with the South Stormont Foodgrains Bank Project will be getting ready to plant the seeds that will grow the crops, to raise money which will help end global hunger through the Canadian Foodgrains Bank.
The Canadian Foodgrains Bank is described as "a partnership of 15 Canadian churches and church-based agencies working together to end global hunger" by supporting international agencies, engaging Canadians and influencing policies which will contribute to the end of global hunger.
On April 4, the South Stormont Foodgrains Bank Project will be holding a fundraising roast beef dinner at St. John's Presbyterian Church in Cornwall, with tickets costing $25 per person. The guest speakers for the evening will be David Epp, the Regional Coordinator for Ontario of the Canadian Foodgrains Bank, and Melody Mendonca. The topic will be Good Soil, a campaign to get more support from Canadian international aid programs for small scale agriculture.
