Supporters of the Boissevain-Morton-Whitewater Growing Project gathered last week to celebrate the conclusion of another fund raising season for the Canadian Foodgrains Bank.
About 35 people showed up at Del Fraser's farm west of Fairfax for a luncheon.
Local coordinators say they were unable to plant a crop because of the excessive amount of moisture this spring. Despite that problem they still raised close to $50,000 dollars to send to the Canadian Foodgrains Bank to support the work that organization does around the world.
The Manitoba coordinator of the Foodgrains bank is Harold Penner. He attended the luncheon to thank supporters and bring them up to speed on the work the foodgrains bank is doing. Penner says there's never a shortage of need for food.
