November 28 will mark the 105th anniverary of Lotta Hitschmanova's birthday. As founder of USC Canada, Dr. Lotta was tireless. Whether she was visitng USC Canada's programs in other countries, voicing one of the many iconic "56-Sparks-Street-Ottawa" commercials or speaking to a classroom of 10-year-olds, Lotta's mission was always the same: to make the world a "better, kinder place for all."

World Food Day by the Numbers

All too often, the only encounter folks have with food is the stuff that ends up on their dinner plates. But what makes it to your table has a novel's worth of history behind it. Millenia of farmers' work saving seeds, sowing them and saving them again - not to mention the work of the individual farmer that went into producing that particular crop.

LottaHitschmanova tbnWhat's in a Name?

We’re called USC Canada because we started out way back in 1945 as the Unitarian Service Committee, founded by the energetic Dr. Lotta Hitschmanova. We’re still planting the seeds that Lotta sowed. Find out more about our founder, Dr. Lotta Hitschmanova.
