For many, food insecurity is not about food at all, but rather insufficient income and pervasive material deprivation – when there isn’t enough food, there are often other needs not being met. So why do we continue to see governments investing in emergency food programs to “solve” food insecurity? Can we invest in equitable income in Canada? What would a basic income do for food security across Canada?
Join panelists Professor Evelyn L Forget, Kirsten Bernas and Meaghan Erbus for a discussion of basic income solutions and the opportunities to create real change for food insecure Canadians.
