For the ninth year, Viterra is partnering with the Canadian Foodgrains Bank to help end world hunger.

Viterra will provide 267 acres of land around five terminals in Alberta and Saskatchewan to the Foodgrains Bank.

Alberta sites include Lethbridge, and Trochu, with Saskatchewan sites including Balgonie, Grenfell, and Raymore.

Farmers volunteer their time, expertise, and resources to grow crops, as part of a community-led growing project with proceeds from the sale of the crops donated to the Foodgrains Bank, to support partner organizations working to end global hunger.

Kyle Jeworski, CEO for Viterra Canada says for nearly a decade, they've proudly supported the Canadian Foodgrains Bank and its focus on fighting food insecurity in key regions.

In addition to providing the land, Viterra will also provide the Foodgrains Bank with a donation of $5 for each tonne of crops donated to the organization through its grain elevators in Western Canada.

Andy Harrington, executive director of the Foodgrains Bank says they're grateful for the continued support of Viterra.

"With 783 million people globally experiencing hunger, and places like Sudan experiencing crisis levels of food insecurity, the contribution of Canadian organizations towards this mission of ending hunger is vitally important."
