Keynote speaker Dr. Lynn McIntyre of the University of Calgary says she will be bringing “bold ideas” to a town hall meeting hosted by Operation Sharing on Tuesday, Sept. 26.

McIntyre said she will first address the issue of food insecurity or the lack of access to food due to financial constraints.

“I will be talking about how it is an income problem not a food problem,” she said. “If you eliminate food insecurity than you are half way to eliminating poverty.”

People from all sectors of the community are invited to the meeting, which is designed to start a conversation that could lead to real change in how Oxford County deals with poverty and food insecurity.
