A child from the Zimbabwe feeding programFood is essential to our survival.  In times of crisis like earthquakes, droughts, floods and famines, people often lose their regular access to food. Crops may be destroyed and food stores lost.  In times like this, ERDO responds with appropriate food aid to help bridge the hunger gap until food is regularly available. 

ERDO relies on a strong set of partnerships with agencies sharing similar values and commitment to excellence. One of these agencies is the Canadian Foodgrains Bank (CFGB).  In fact, ERDO is a founding member of CFGB and continues to fully participate in the formation of food relief and security best practices. 

In 2018, through relationships with CFGB and other partners, we helped feed over 161,000 people in countries like Bangladesh, Somalia, Kenya and Zimbabwe.  

Donations to this work come in different forms: cash, cheques, credit card donations and in ways that are not so typical;  through the hard work and generous donations of Canadian farmers, the sale of grains and livestock here in Canada help to provide food aid to countries in need. 

The Canadian Foodgrains Bank receives matching donations from the Canadian government (Foreign Affairs, Trade and Development Canada - DFATD, formerly CIDA). 

For specific programs, ERDO can access matched funds up to 4:1, making your food relief Canadian Foodgrains Bank Logodonations reach so many more families in need. See a list of our current matched programs>>>.
