OSNPPH position statement on responses to food insecurity
The OSNPPH Food Security Workgroup has developed a position statement and an accompanying infographic to increase awareness among public health staff and management about the growing problem of household food insecurity in Ontario and the urgent need to advocate for effective responses. Since its release, the Position Statement has received official endorsements from these organizations and individuals.
The Board of Directors of the Ontario Healthy Communities Coalition voted unanimously at the March 18th meeting to support the OSNPPH's position on food security. They signed up OHCC as a support on their website and also submitted a letter of support to OSNPPH.
