The Food Security Crisis in the North--What Next? Food Secure Canada

Online
March 19, 2015

12:00-1:00 p.m. EDT

As most residents living in Northern Canada will tell you, Nutrition North (the only federal program to counter the high costs of food in the North) is falling short. This was confirmed in November 2014 by the Office of the Auditor General in its highly anticipated report. The findings were dismal yet predictable: on all accounts Nutrition North had failed in the alleviation of food insecurity in northern Canada. Criticism and action are growing across the North. Feeding My Family, the Nunavut Food Security Coalition's Nunavut Food Security Strategy, and the APTN’s Wasting Away documentary have all brought this critical topic to the national stage. The question remains - what next?  What will it take to finally make staggering food insecurity in Northern Canada a priority for the federal government? During this national webinar we will hear from key leaders in the North about their vision for moving this urgent issue forward in the upcoming election year, and hear how our members can support this important work.
