More than 10 per cent of Northumberland households are food insecure – A new anti-poverty campaign is trying to change that.

The HKPR health unit’s Rethink Poverty: Change Minds, Change Lives campaign is trying to start a conversation about the long-term effects of families not having enough food or the the funds to buy it.

Residents are encouraged to visit www.rethinkpoverty.ca and sign a template letter for our local provincial and federal politicians – encouraging a higher minimum wage, a basic income guarantee and better employment standards.
