Connecting our Diverse Food Security Experiences: A Panel Discussion

Listen in and learn

from these valued community members and their food security experiences.


The Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations defines food security as having physical and economic access to sufficient, safe, and nutritious food to allow people to meet their dietary needs and food preferences to keep an active and healthy life.

We know that 14.4% of Manitoba households and 20% of children do not have this food secure experience.

How is this food insecurity experienced?

Join Charlene, Afaf & Carly each with their own unique perspectives and experiences to explore the causes and solutions for food insecurity in Manitoba.

Moderated by Caryn Douglas.

Caryn has experience working with folks experiencing food insecurity and poverty in Winnipeg’s west end. She was formerly on Food Matters Manitoba staff with responsibility for communication and was involved in the production of the video series Food Insecurity in Manitoba. She is current the minister at The United Church in Meadowood.
