9 in 10 Canadians see no progress being made on food insecurity, poll finds.


In May 2017, Community Food Centres Canada commission a poll of Canadians on their opinions about food insecurity, health, and poverty. 

According to the poll, 91 per cent of Canadians think food insecurity is a persistent problem in our country, a problem that 41 per cent believe has worsened in the last decade. And Canadians want to see solutions: 74 per cent believe that government has a responsibility to take action to ensure everyone has access to healthy, affordable food. Check out these and the other findings of Canadians attitudes on these important issues.
