The Conference Board is missing an amazing opportunity to involve civil society organizations, new Canadians, entrepreneurs and young farmers in their food strategy development.
Food Secure Canada
Food Secure Canada is a Canada-wide alliance of civil society organizations and individuals collaborating to advance dialogue and cooperation for policies and programs that improve food security in Canada and globally.
We think a worthwhile National Food Policy needs to address hunger, fisheries, Indigenous and labour rights, children, local food, Northern issues and more. Don't you?
Having no national food policy is expensive, costing Canadian taxpayers billions in stopgap programs that don't address the underlying issues.
The massive recall of beef that may be contaminated with E. coli and the shutdown of the XL Foods plant in Alberta highlights the vulnerability of our food systems when much depends on one plant.
Dozens of organizations across the country are mobilizing to engage in a dialogue with UN Special Rapporteur on the Right to Food Olivier De Schutter on March 4 and March 5.
Bring the UN to your community -- join Food Secure Canada for a conversation with the Special Rapporteur on the right to food.
