Eat Think Vote — food insecurity and poverty    Thu Sep 26, 2019, Duncan, BC

Cowichan Green Community engaging Cowichan residents and candidates on food insecurity and poverty issues at an “Eat Think Vote” event
On September 26th, CGC is hosting an Eat Think Vote event to give members of our community an opportunity to discuss with all the federal candidates their parties’ plans to address food insecurity, poverty, and poor health in Cowichan and across the country.

The event will be held at the Christian Reformed Church, 930 Trunk Rd, Duncan, from 5pm to 7pm and will include refreshments, information, and presentations by some of our region’s service providers who are most connected to people facing food insecurity. There will also be an opportunity for attendees to ask specific food insecurity questions to the candidates.

This Eat Think Vote event is one of dozens of similar events being hosted by individuals and organizations across Canada to put food insecurity and income issues on the table. The campaign is led by Food Secure Canada and is in partnership with Community Food Centres Canada.

“Everyone in Canada should have access to sufficient, safe and nutritious food, and it’s up to all of us to push our elected officials to take action. Four million Canadians, including 1.15 million children, are food insecure and struggle to put food on the table,” says Judy Stafford, Executive Director, CGC. “We want to make sure candidates hear from our community members about how these issues affect their daily lives, and what policies are necessary to create change.”
