USC Canada helps farmers in Africa, Asia and Latin America grow more food for their families, in ways that are kind to the environment and that nurture biodiversity.
On October 16, USC Canada joins millions of people around the world in celebrating World Food Day. Biodiversity is all about food and farmers. It's the earth's life-support system, and nature's brilliant insurance policy against disaster.
Much is at stake for us all, and in a real sense, USC Canada is helping farmers plant the Seeds of our very Survival. Where will donations go? All donations will go to support USC's work in remote regions of the Central American country of Honduras. Our R4B-Toronto goal is to raise $9,000 to support the agricultural, biodiversity and environmental initiatives of our local partner, FIPAH, the Foundation for Participatory Research with Honduran Farmers. FIPAH works with women, men and youth farmers to help diversify their seed supply, develop hardier plant varieties that grow well on their soils, and promote a more resilient, sustainable way of growing food for their families.
Please send an email to R4B@usc-canada.org to receive detailed information.

Thanks for your support, and thanks to the farmers who grow our food!
Viva la Biodiversidad!
