Minimizing Food Waste for Food Security

Shoutout to my dietitian colleague, friend, and college classmate Diana over at bitemywords.com for posting this piece on why food waste reduction won’t solve food insecurity. To put it simply, it won’t. Reducing waste is great. Talking about food security to increase awareness is also great but neither, will solve the growing problem. 

Policy action must happen to reduce food insecurity, which currently affects about 13% of Canadians and continues to negatively impact more people each year.

Another few great sites to read more about food security are Food Secure Canada and PROOF and you can read my last post about food insecurity in northern Canada and potential policy action here.
