Have you joined the #EATTHINKVOTE Campaign?
Be part of the solution for a better food system in Canada!
- Healthy School Food Programs – that all kids in Canadian schools have access to healthy food every day;
- Support for New Farmers – from increased access to capital to land, that new farmers find the support they need to thrive and contribute to stronger, more diversified sustainable food supply in Canada;
- Zero Hunger in Canada – that the right to food is a reality for the 4 million Canadians that do not have food security;
- Affordable Food in the North – that good food is accessible and affordable in Canada’s remote and northern communities.
There are many ways to get involved and show your support, so please consider doing so! You can sign the petition (the goal is 10 000 signatures and right now, we have about 2000), donate to Food Secure Canada, and/or host an event in your community and invite your local MP to generate discussion about one our fundamental human needs: FOOD! And particularly, why affordable local organic food should be accessible for all in this country.
