Join us for a virtual “Singin’ in the Grain” fundraising concert on Friday, October 16, 2020 from 8:00 p.m. CST. Appropriately, October 16th is World Food Day.
The ‘Singin’ in the Grain’ committee has organized annual fundraising concerts to support Canadian Foodgrains Bank since 2011. COVID-19 has meant that we have had to regretfully cancel our concerts with high school choirs from Steinbach and Winnipeg previously planned for this fall. The pandemic is also a global hardship that recognizes no borders. In countries where food security was already an issue, the COVID-19 pandemic has made many people’s situation much more precarious and is threatening a hunger pandemic. In response to this global pandemic and food security crisis, we invite you to a “virtual” fundraising concert to support food security programs of Mennonite Central Committee (MCC) and the Foodgrains Bank as they responds to the COVID-19 pandemic. Three sets of talented musical guests have offered their time and talents for you to enjoy in an hour of outstanding music: the Quonset Brothers from Winkler, sister-brother duo Kristel Peters and Korey Peters from Steinbach, and Steve Bell from Winnipeg.
Jim Cornelius, outgoing executive director of Canadian Foodgrains Bank, will also offer a short update. All proceeds will go toward COVID-19 response programs of MCC through the Foodgrains Bank.

Thank you for supporting Singin’ in the Grain 2020 and for helping those who experience greater hunger because of COVID-19.
