CBM SUNDAY is YOUR MISSION SUNDAY.
CBM invites Canadian Baptist churches across the country to do one powerful, generous and compassionate act – MAKE HUNGER MATTER. Help us provide food & other assistance in times of crisis and emergency, saving lives and helping people begin the longer journey of recovery and rebuilding. FOOD SAVES LIVES.
Poor nutrition in the first few months of a child’s life can lead to stunted growth, which is irreversible and leads to long-term developmental delays. Nearly half of all deaths in children under 5 are attributable to malnutrition. This translates into about 3 million unnecessary deaths of children per year.
“We gave our first crop (first yield) to the church. We also gave some vegetables to our neighbours and still had lots of eggplant, tomatoes and okra left to sell. Our neighbours were very happy that we shared with them and want to try what we are doing. We will help our neighbours to plant their own gardens.”
Make Hunger Matter.
CBM has helped 1,080 families in 36 villages grow organic rice, and start kitchen gardens for a healthier, balanced diet. They also conduct health awareness campaigns and hold medical camps for vital medical care and testing including immunization for children, nutritional supplements and affordable medicines.
Join Us Today.
You can stand in solidarity with Naresh and Kumari. Give some of the “first fruits” of your labour, to help more children and families have nutritious food and a healthy start in life.

Help us provide projects that range from emergency food assistance to longer-term food security and nutrition programs.
