Local Canadian Foodgrains Bank Project
Canadian Foodgrains Bank logo

In the spring of 2013 the Parish of Fitzroy Harbour, comprised of St. George’s, Fitzroy Harbour and St. Thomas, Woodlawn, and the Parish of Christ Church Bells Corners formed a partnership to grow a crop of soybeans on a 25 acre field in West Carleton. The net proceeds of this project, not yet finalized at the time of writing but estimated at more than $7,000, will go to the Canadian Foodgrains Bank (CFB), a church-based ecumenical organization whose mission is “working to end global hunger” and of which the Anglican Church of Canada is a member.

This rural-urban partnership has been a great success, both in terms of a significant outreach accomplishment and, simply, getting to know each other! Pending decisions by both parishes, the project may continue into the 2014 growing season and, perhaps, for years beyond that.
