This grant represents Canada’s long-term institutional support to the Canadian Foodgrains Bank (CFGB). CFGB uses these funds, along with other donors’ funding, to achieve its mandate. CFGB’s mandate is to reduce hunger and malnutrition in developing countries. Canada's support to CFGB helps provide food assistance to minimize people’s suffering in emergency and acute hunger situations worldwide and help communities rebuild their livelihoods. Project activities include: (1) providing food, vouchers, and cash to households that have been affected by a humanitarian crisis and do not have sufficient access to nutritious food; (2) providing agriculture, livestock, and other livelihood inputs and supports; (3) improving women’s participation in advisory and leadership roles in the design and implementation of project responses; (4) increasing awareness and support by decision-makers and key influencers of relevant and practical public policy proposals to reduce hunger and prevent and address humanitarian crises; and (5) providing educational and information materials on global hunger and humanitarian crises to approximately 30,000 Canadians.

Expected results 

The expected outcomes of this project include: (1) stabilized or increased consumption of nutritious food by households affected by humanitarian crises; (2) protected and restored livelihoods for households affected by humanitarian crises; (3) increased women’s participation in decision-making and leadership resulting from gender-responsive humanitarian action; (4) improved Canadian and international policies to reduce hunger and to prevent and address humanitarian crises; and (5) increased awareness and knowledge of Canadians of issues related to global hunger and humanitarian crises. The expected ultimate outcome is lives saved, suffering alleviated, and human dignity maintained in countries experiencing humanitarian crises or acute food insecurity.
