Change happens when you fight for it

Food insecurity isn't a food problem. It's a money problem. Four million Canadians are food insecure, and it's not because there's not enough food to eat. It's because people can't afford to pay the rent and fill their grocery cart. Wages are too low, jobs too temporary. Social assistance rates keep people in poverty. We're not building enough affordable housing to meet rising demands. 

These are big issues. And the last thing we can afford is to let them paralyze us. Universal healthcare, paid vacation, suffrage  – those privileges exist because previous generations stood up and fought for those rights. At a time of growing inequality, it's more important than ever that we keep fighting for the country we want to see – one where everyone has the means, knowledge, and voice to access good food with dignity.
