The London Good Food Project
Food insecurity within the London and Middlesex County community is a continuous and growing concern.
Historically, the cycle of food insecurity has been rooted in a lack of financial means which provides a heightened focus on identity rooted in social, cultural, and economic determinants, leaving low-income individuals faced with the most significant barriers towards reaching optimal health and wellbeing.
Poor diet and nutritional patterns have a domino effect, contributing to reduced overall health, chronic disease, and negative mental health outcomes. Without access to good food, individuals can suffer from chronic health conditions and are at a greater risk of developing secondary health issues.
The alleviation of Food Insecurity in London is a cornerstone to the mission of the Glen Cairn Community Resource Centre.
You can help end hunger!
Did you know that in 2021, 15.9% of households in the ten provinces experienced some level of food insecurity in the previous 12 months? That amounts to 5.8 million people, including almost 1.4 million children under the age of 18, living in food-insecure households. When you donate, you help feed your neighbours in need.
