Quote:

Stomach This!
2.7 million Canadians are food insecure.

Food security: exists when everyone has access to sufficient and nutritious food to meet their needs for a healthy life.

Do you think everyone in your community has access to healthy food?
Is food a right or a privilege?
Do you think about where your food comes from?
Want to work with other students and the community?

APPLY NOW to become a trained peer educator on food security in your community.

When: Saturday, March 21st 9:30-5
Where: Downtown Toronto
Who: 20 selected youth (aged 15-24) from in and around the GTA

This event is FREE and includes a lunch (a limited number of travel bursaries are available).
