811 million people in the world go hungry – 276 million people are suffering from increasing food insecurity. Access to safe, nutritious, and sufficient food is a basic need with a priority given to the most vulnerable. CDF Canada provides education, agricultural practices, and resources so farmers can generate higher crop yields; allowing farmers to secure enough food for their own needs and produce enough to sell in local markets. This improves the family’s livelihood, strengthens community resilience and their local economy.Donate Now!
