Ontario Harvest Feeds World's Hungry


Farmers from Christian Reformed churches in Thunder Bay, Ontario, banded together with other local farmers to grow a field of barley that will help people in need of food aid. The farmers grew 45 acres of barley on donated land with donated seed, time, and equipment. Worth $11,000, the barley was sold and the money given to the Canadian Foodgrains Bank, where it was matched 4 to 1 by the Canadian government, resulting in $55,000 of actual funding to help feed hungry people.
