MISSION CAPSULES: Your voice is powerful. Let it be heard! Take part in the Harvest of Letters campaign and write to your MP urging the Canadian government to invest in smallholder agriculture in developing countries. Up to 80% of the world's poor depend on farming to feed their families year round. With changing weather patterns, drought and rising cost of seeds, farming is becoming more difficult and unpredictable leaving smallholder farmers vulnerable to hunger. Financial support for innovative farming practices is one of the best ways to alleviate hunger and can make a big difference in the lives of farmers, their families and their communities.
