CTV August 28 Interview with Rob Moquin Video Link

How can the province ensure every community has access to healthy and affordable foods?
What public services and programs are needed to support sustainability throughout the food system?

Food Matters Manitoba is working with the Canadian Centre for Policy Alternatives Manitoba and communities across the province to build an Alternative Provincial Budget that reflects the priorities and needs of our communities.

Join us for a conversation so your experience and perspective can be included.

FMM has prepared a Food Security Backgrounder document summarizing some of the context and issues related to food security in the province. It can be downloaded here.

On Tuesday, August 20, 2019 we are in Brandon, 6:30 to 8:30  (at 638 Princess Ave., Cultural Resource Centre)

On August 28th we are in Winnipeg, 12:30 to 3:00 (at 1085 Winnipeg Ave., Winnipeg Harvest)

Share your ideas! Light refreshments will be provided.
