Drawing on data from Statistic Canada’s Canadian Community Health Survey, the report finds over one in ten B.C. households struggling to put food on the table in 2011-12. Families with children under the age of 18 were at an even greater risk of food insecurity, with one in six B.C. children living in a food insecure household.
This report explains why reducing household food insecurity at a population level will require policy changes that improve a household’s financial circumstances. More information found here.
