Food is one of the three core needs we all face… home, food and responsibility for those we care for, children, elders and family. COVID and post COVID pandemic economic pressures are complicating hunger & food security. The impact on those disadvantaged or living in a poverty trap, now facing more extreme restrictions to community support, places them deeper in the survival loop. Raising food prices are draining bank accounts. Policymakers and employers have failed to move the needle for households scrambling month to month. Living costs, like housing, have skyrocketed, adding to the pressure.

When we think of Jesus’ vision of abundant life for all, one of the basics is access to food security.

For now, TGUC continues to advocate for increase to social and disability assistance rates, while offers meals and our emergency pantry to help our neighbours access fresh, healthy food and essential household supplies.
