Sask. food banks to benefit from farmers’ crop donations to AGT Foods

Sep 22, 2023

Farmers now have the opportunity to donate some of the extra grain in their bins and put food directly onto the dinner plates of Saskatchewan people.

AGT Foods is teaming up with Food Banks Canada and Drive Away Hunger for the AGT Food Bank Crop Exchange Program.

The program will connect producers across Saskatchewan with food banks in their communities by allowing them to “round down” their deliveries of pulses, grain, or canola at AGT Foods facilities.

According to a media release, if a farmer delivers 40 metric tonnes and decides to donate one metric tonne, they’ll receive a receipt for their donation as well as payment for 39 metric tonnes. Then, local and provincial food banks will receive a dollar-for-dollar food credit from AGT towards pasta, rice, and other staple foods.
