World Food Program

TORONTO, CANADA (CTV.ca) - Canada has pledged a total of $350 million over five years to the World Food Program and the Canadian Foodgrains Bank.

International Co-operation Minister Bev Oda says some of the money, coming on the eve of the WFP's 50th anniversary, will help the UN agency feed people facing natural disaster and humanitarian crisis.

The World Food Program is CIDA's largest humanitarian partner.

CIDA has also made an additional four-year commitment to WFP's school feeding program in places like Ethiopia, where 690,000 children will receive nutritionally fortified, cooked meals each day.

The Canadian Foodgrains Bank, CIDA's largest Canadian food assistance partner, provides food and development assistance through 15 Canadian church-based member agencies.
