As I have mentioned before on this blog, I work in international development. My employer, Canadian Foodgrains Bank, provides food for people in the developing world who don't have enough to eat. In 2011-12 we provided 40,849 tonnes of food. Altogether, we helped 2.1 million people in 36 countries.
How much food is that? Enough to fill 450 hopper cars, or a train eight kilometres long--as this video amply illustrates!
