Why it matters

Our country has been deeply affected by the coronavirus crisis. It’s challenging enough to self-isolate in a well-stocked home. But for the many Canadians struggling to get by, there is a heightened sense of anxiety.

Food insecurity was already an urgent problem before the pandemic, with 1 in 8 Canadians struggling to put food on the table. Now, 1 in 7 people experience food insecurity. With an uncertain economic recovery, the number of people who require food access will only continue to grow.
