I’m not going to mince words: food insecurity in Canada is at a crisis level. How else to describe the four million of our fellow citizens who are unsure when they’ll eat next, or who are missing meals so their kids can eat? That’s thirteen per cent of our population. And if you’re black, this number soars to 29%. If you’re a lone female parent, it’s 33%. If you happen to be Inuit living in Nunavut, it’s 55%. Across the country, 1 in 6 kids live in a food insecure household. No matter how you slice it, in an abundant country like ours, this is a disaster of massive proportions.
