Meetings are being held across Grey-Bruce to discuss food insecurity.

The meetings being put on by the Food Security Action Group of the Bruce Grey Poverty Task Force aim to bring community organizations, municipal leaders, food producers and community members together, with a goal of improving the system to get food into the hands of those who need it.

Kimberly Edwards, food security hub project co-ordinator, said there are already services available such as food banks in many rural communities in the area, but the goal of the project is to better meet community needs.

“It is about bringing together these service providers and program providers and talking about how to move towards more food security in each town, and what programs and services might compliment that, which programs are missing, and what needs to change,” said Edwards.
