Presbyterian World Service & Development is a member and together we respond to immediate and long-term food needs of people in developing countries. Today CFGB is one of Canada's leading food assistance organizations and predominant Christian responses to hunger. Presbyterians in Canada are dynamic partners in this effort to help those who do not have enough to eat - last year PWS&D worked with CFGB on food aid and food security projects in 16 countries, worth nearly $2 million.
