In 2017, we settled in to our new home. We mulled over a lot of ideas. We made some tough choices. And we continued working to advance “Good Food for All” in neighbourhoods across Toronto. We invite you to see our 2017 impacts in this report. Thank you to everyone who supported us in 2017! We really couldn’t have done any of it without you.
Think food is a fundamental right? We think so, but we also recognize that there is still a lot of work to do for everyone to be able to enjoy the right to food. Canada ratified the International Covenant on Economic, Social and Cultural Rights in 1976, which includes the right to adequate food. This doesn’t mean that the government is required to give out free food, but instead a commitment to create the conditions for people to feed themselves, their families and their communities in dignity, today and in the future.
