Yesterday, farmers got together to do what they do best.

A crew of about 20 people harvested fields of hard red spring wheat. The goodwill was part of the local Canadian Food Grains Bank Project, a Christian-based food aid and development organization that collects food and money for the world’s hungry.

Four combines, six trucks and the team of workers gathered on donated land north of the city of Swift Current.

Troy LaForge is the local co-ordinator. He says the work, time and compassion were given freely to help end hunger.

Last week the local Food Grains Project combined land near Wymark.

Work is already underway for next year’s project. LaForge says they are always looking for help and cash donations.
