With world hunger growing, there is a need to look at the ways governments and communities can work together to ensure sustainable and affordable access to food - for everyone. Debbie Field (Food Share) will explore a variety of food security options. Michael Oliphant (Daily Bread Food Bank) will speak to the efforts Daily Bread Food Bank has made to address the underlying cause of hunger, poverty, through public policy and political advocacy. Lorie Stahlbrand (Local Plus) will discuss how growing local sustainable food systems which preserve agricultural land and ensure that farmers can make a decent living, is key to food security.
