Surrey /White Rock Food Action Coalition is a group of citizens, agencies and other leaders in collaborative food security work. We believe everyone has a contribution to make in advancing food policy and food security in our communities.
In Canada, we don’t often hear of people starving to death. We have mechanisms in place to make sure this doesn’t happen. We do, however, have more than one million households or 1 in 12 people that experiences food insecurity, and this issue is likely even more concentrated in Surrey, which has 11 of the 20 poorest neighbourhoods in BC. Food insecurity is a critical issue because it has significant and long lasting effects on individuals and families.
We work together to change this and we invite you to join us.Read More
