Sept 7th Minutes

September 7th was a great meeting, we tested out a new meeting format that went pretty smoothly, thanks to everyone’s patience as we smooth out the wrinkles!

The groups that we heard from included the Kamloops Makerspace and their beautiful chicken coop (link to CBC story), Marcia Dick asking the KFPC to host Just Eat It at the January Films for Change and asking for volunteers to help organize it, and from Krista and Jenn from TRU talking about IDays in March, and asking for ideas to showcase food to students. We also learned about Gardengate from Rob, it was an awesome presentation, and very cool to learn about the program.

TORONTO, August 31, 2016 — Almost half a million British Columbians experienced some level of household food insecurity in 2011-2012, according to a new report from PROOF, a research group based at the University of Toronto.

Drawing on data from Statistic Canada’s Canadian Community Health Survey, the report finds over one in ten B.C. households struggling to put food on the table in 2011-12. Families with children under the age of 18 were at an even greater risk of food insecurity, with one in six B.C. children living in a food insecure household.
