The Tamarack Institute and the Maple Leaf Centre for Action on Food Security are hosting a panel discussion, What Would it Take to End Food Insecurity?, on Wednesday, June 16, 2021, from 1 – 2 p.m. ET.

Tamarack has shared, “The federal government has acknowledged the importance of addressing food insecurity in Canada, but what could this look like? What does it mean to have an impact on food insecurity and what efforts are needed to ensure all Canadians are food secure?” The webinar will highlight poverty as an important driver in food insecurity, and the solutions needed at national, regional and local levels.

Panelists:

  • Evan Fraser, Co-Chair of Canada’s Food Policy Advisory Council
  • Jessica McLachlan, Co-lead of Northern Ontario Indigenous Food Sovereignty Collaborative
  • Paul Taylor, Executive Director of FoodShare Toronto
  • Sasha McNicoll, Senior Policy Analyst with Community Food Centres Canada

The panel will discuss the role of different sectors in moving from short-term, downstream responses to long-term, systemic solutions that build capacity, enable COVID recovery and increase resiliency.
