Food Security – Hungry for a sure thing?


Roughly half the Earth’s population now lives in cities, meaning fewer farmers are producing the food it takes to feed us. Here in Canada, though we are blessed with abundant land, a growing portion of our food is coming from abroad–as oil prices rise, our food cost will sure to follow. Food safety and security is often taken for granted.

Darcy Higgins, Executive Director of the Food Forward Advocacy Alliance, has some ideas on how to fix this. And he wants to share them with us.

Food Forward is a Toronto-based, registered non-profit organization advocating for a better food system. It works with the public, politicians and those involved in the food sector to educate and advocate for food that is healthy, local, sustainable, ethically produced and accessible for all.

We’ll be meeting at Pauper’s Pub (539 Bloor St) on October 12th at 7pm.  Doors open 7pm, discussion starts 7:30.

As always, our events are free.  Please RSVP to using Eventbrite for an entry for our doorprize.
