Food for Talk
OUR ROLE IN THE INTERNATIONAL FOOD CHAIN
The price of rice has risen by as much as 70% over the last year.
Why? And what does that mean for Canada and the rest of the world?
Rising populations, trade and climate change have sent food prices
soaring across the globe. These factors have recently prompted the
United Nations to declare a world food “crisis”. Join us for a public
dialogue bringing together youth, senior and local community members
with representatives from business, government and NGOs. Hear from
expert guest speakers and have your say.
