[Stewiacke, NS] – A number of local farmers are working together on a special project with the desire to help end hunger.
“We grow our food and we have an abundance in Canada. They found this is a good way to give back,” said Ian MacHattie, a provincial co-ordinator with Canadian Foodgrains Bank, in a news release.
All the proceeds of the effort will go to Canadian Foodgrains Bank to help in Canada’s commitment to feed the hungry worldwide.
So far, according to the release, all the work, planting, harvesting, seed spray and land rental has been donated.
“We are only shy about $3,000 … the money needed to buy fertilizer,” said the release.
The Canadian Foodgrains Bank has more than 300 similar ‘growing projects’ across Canada.
