This is your invitation to Put Food in the Budget campaign meeting on December 2 at the Friend's House on 60 Lowther. (See poster below)  PLEASE RSVP HERE

We will develop strategy on how to push for immediate increase in social assistance in the face of Liberal delaying tactics like the Basic Income Pilot and Income Security Reform Working Group. In addition there will be presentations and discussion on poverty through an anti-racism lens and organizing initiatives happening in different communities around increased hydro, limits of food bank charity, overcrowded shelters and lack of affordable housing. Plan to join us!
