Local food producers struggle to stem

Canada's growing hunger problem

"We are not paying the cost to future generations of climate change, we are not paying an appropriate value to ensure animals are cared for and husbanded in a way that is appropriate, we are not paying the cost of water pollution or soil degradation," says Evan Fraser, Liu Visiting Professor and Canada Research Chair in Global Food Security at the University of Guelph, in a Globe and Mail article that launched a 9-part weekly series on food security in Canada. Can we feed everyone? Evan Fraser thinks so in this article featured on CNN. He also explores the contradictions of the world food system and a manifesto for solving the global food crisis in these recent news articles related to World Food Day on Oct. 16th.
