Food is a basic human right.  Everyone has the right to access enough safe, nutritious, and culturally appropriate food in a way that promotes self-reliance and social justice.  This is known as food security.   Unfortunately, food insecurity is a problem in Northwestern Ontario.

What can you do to help?
Get in the know...about the root issues and what can be done.
Get involved in your security is not just a poverty issue; it is a much larger issue that involves the whole food system and affects every one of us.

Food Security: It's Everybody's Business

Join us for an interactive day to learn about food security and share ideas about how we can increase food security in the Rainy River District.

Who should attend?
Anyone interested in increasing access to food in the Rainy River District, health promoters, health educators, community health representatives, local food enthusiasts, producers and farmers.
