Food Security, Food Systems, Food Sovereignty, Food Justice - so many terms related to food, it can be challenging to keep them all straight! Food For All NB is here to help!
On June 15th, we restart "What the Food?!" webinar series to tease out the nuance of food issues. For the first episode of 2022, we’re thrilled to welcome back one of our very first guests; Dr. Valerie Tarasuk. Dr. Tarasuk returns to share an update on the state of household food insecurity in 2021 and discuss how governments have recently responded to this problem. During this event, we’ll learn more about what's changed since 2018, what the record inflation means for food insecurity moving forward, and what is needed to protect people from food insecurity.

Simultaneous FR/ENG Interpretation will be available to attendees. This event will be recorded.
