CARMAN, Manitoba – In those first few minutes after arriving at Syl’s Restaurant in Carman, members of the delegation from the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea (DPRK, also known as North Korea) sit at the edge of the outdoor eating area. Then they see local resident Rene McFarlane at a picnic table with her son, Lane. The North Koreans move toward McFarlane and with the help of a translator, a conversation about families in both countries begins.

Alberta's Grow Hope for 2018 was a huge success! For a second year, Richard and Esther Goerzen offered 100 acres for the Southern Alberta Grow Hope project. After adding an additional project with a group of farmers in Northern Alberta we had over 200 Grow Hope acres, and all were sponsored! With the sale of the crop this winter that may be worth as much as $100,000 for food projects around the world. As well, the Canadian Foodgrains Bank match from the government can turn that $100,000 into as much as $400,000!
Thank you to everyone who supported Grow Hope!
Charity Intelligence has named Canadian Foodgrains Bank one of the top 10 charities in Canada in 2018.
