The Eastern Ontario Health Unit (EOHU) is warning against food insecurity in Cornwall and the United Counties of SD&G. They are warning that the cost of nutritious food in the region has risen by nine per cent over the past year.

“These costs keep increasing every year, and because of the cost of housing and inadequate income, many people and families are struggling every month to meet the needs of their household,” says Nikolas Hotte, Manager of the Chronic Disease Prevention program.
