The Human Right to Food: A panel discussion
The right to food protects Canadians from food insecurity and hunger. However, this does not obligate the Canadian government to feed citizens. This panel will examine the practicality of harnessing private sector food supply chains to provide affordable
and nutritious food as well as assessing policy mechanisms that can protect Canadians against hunger and malnutrition.
Can government action, public distribution systems, food networks and private supply chains secure the right to food security?
