Hunger is a growing issue in our city and our country.
Our office organizes food drives to address the immediate need of making sure people can feed their families. Throughout the pandemic I have heard from many of our community's local food banks. They have described a sharp uptick in demand that they are struggling to keep up with. While it is important to give what we can and to support our neighbours, we must also fight for legislation that can truly end hunger.
That's why I invited Paul Taylor to have a conversation with me about food insecurity, its root causes, and what we can do as legislators and citizens to create meaningful change.
Paul Taylor is the Executive Director of FoodShare Toronto and the official Federal NDP candidate for Parkdale-High Park.
