Description

…if you spend yourselves in behalf of the hungry and satisfy the needs of the oppressed, then your light will rise in the darkness, and your night will become like the noonday.

Isaiah 58:10


1 Kings 17 tells about a widow who gives her last meal away to Isaiah based on her faith and trust that God would provide. In the end because of her obedience, God provided more than she could ever have imagined.

In a world where we produce enough food to feed everyone, 1795 million people—2one in nine—still go to bed on an empty stomach each night. Even more—2one   in three—suffer from some form of malnutrition (World Food Program (WFP), 2018). The World Hunger Organization states the problem is that many people in the world do not have sufficient land to grow food, money to buy food, or even access to food. Through our membership with the Canadian Foodgrains Bank (CFGB), we are responding to global hunger by implementing food assistance, and agricultural and livelihood programming. What’s more is that the Christian and Missionary Alliance account with the Canadian Foodgrains Bank is eligible to receive up to 4:1 matching from the Government of Canada for every dollar donated.
