Come and join us for a discussion on food bank access.
When: Monday, December 1, 6:00pm – 8:00pm
Where: Room 308, Metro Hall | 200 Wellington St. W
At the upcoming TYFPC meeting we will be hosting a panel and open discussion on food bank accessibility, particularly access for post-secondary students, youth, and immigrants without documents.
We will be discussing:
- What is the food bank landscape in Toronto and in Canada?
- What barriers to people face to accessing food banks?
- How can we build a city where everyone can access social services without fear?
We will be exploring short-term and long-term solutions for barriers to food bank usage. The speakers will highlight their approaches to these barriers as well as advocacy opportunities for our community members.
Speakers: Abrah McKeen, Ryerson Good Food Centre, North York Harvest Food Bank
