A campaign has been launched to make poverty reduction a priority in the community.

No Money for Food…Cent$less, by the Porcupine Health Unit, aims to advocate for income solutions to help reduce food insecurity.

“What we’re trying to do is let people know that food charity is really not an option. It’s not relieving food insecurity in Ontario or Canada but really food insecurity is a poverty issue,” said Victoria Hall, public health dietitian.
