Call to Action on Food Security - Food Security Cover Sheet

Should we be content that some Ontarians are missing-out on a key opportunity for good health – food security? Does it cause you pause that annual Nutritious Food Basket surveys repeatedly show that many people with low-incomes – both from wages as well as from assistance -- can’t afford healthy eating after meeting other essentials such as housing? Are you comfortable that prosperity is being side-tracked and food bank use is substantially increasing?
