Project Description

RSI founder and roundtable moderator, Yasmin Glanville, kicked off the session noting that 15% of Canadians live in food-insecure households (Statistics Canada, 2021). The roundtable’s goal, she said, was to explore the scale of the food crisis, assess the barriers to making food more accessible and affordable, and discuss active, scalable solutions.

RSI’s experts met that challenge, offering solutions that range from boosting farmers’ markets in urban neighborhoods to making food a human right. This article uses observations from the roundtable, follow-up interviews and research to explore the many ways we can feed more people today – and fix the food system to better serve all Canadians.
