New report on food insecurity in British Columbia

Half a Million People Experience Food Insecurity in British Columbia, Says New Report 
Northern British Columbia Especially Vulnerable

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.

Sept. 7 Agenda

We are going to be trying out a new format for this KFPC meeting, and will be highlighting one of our member organizations, Gardengate! We will have also have time to hear from the Kamloops Makerspace about their new chicken coop design, and from Marcia Dick about hosting Just Eat It as part of the Films for Change series. After dinner, there will be some time devoted to networking, so you will have time to talk to those people you may not have to chance to during regular meetings. We look forward to seeing you at the meeting next week and letting us know what you think of the new structure.

Remember, the meeting starts at 5:30pm at Mt Paul United Church at 140 Laburnum St. It will be a potluck dinner as always!
