Leave NO ONE behind
Collective action across 150 countries worldwide is what makes World Food Day one of the most celebrated UN days of the UN calendar. As as we approach World Food Day this weekend, we continue with our efforts towards helping create a world with better food security.
We are honoured to have Joanne MacKinnon, Community Engagement Coordinator with Little Mountain Neighbourhood House Society, as part of our community and she has been kind to share her thoughts about the work they are doing and how it aligns with the theme for World Food Day “No One is Left Behind“.
She continues by highlighting how it is unfortunate that more people locally are being left behind. And she believes that farmers markets are part of the solution! The Little Mountain Neighbourhood House Society is a proud partner of the Vancouver Farmers Market. Through the partnership, shoppers and farmers provide community members with access to local, healthy produce that otherwise would be inaccessible for them as inflationary food costs consume more of their fixed income.
We’re all in this together so we leave no-one behind
