Additional information

After an intense period of amplified need and crucial work in our province, Food For All held a final “first wave” COVID-19 provincial connection call before heading into summer, showcasing food actors and innovators in NB who activated or bolstered emergency food supports in response to issues amplified by COVID-19.

While celebrating our provincial efforts, we reflected on our learnings to better understand how we might address the root causes of food insecurity and other food issues moving forward.
