Why food banks can't solve the problem of hungry Canadians

The Big Story

In 2021, Statistics Canada reported 5.8 million Canadians suffered some level of food insecurity. As inflation has spiked, so have stories of hungry families needing food banks to fill their tables. But the root causes of food insecurity aren't captured by expensive groceries, nor are they solved with monthly boxes of food.If you want to know why millions of citizens of one of the world's richest countries are hungry, you have to look deeper than that. And if we're going to solve the problem, the solutions have to go beyond simply "give them food". GUEST: Valerie Tarasuk, professor, Department of Nutritional Sciences, University of Toronto; leader of PROOF, an interdisciplinary research program studying effective policy approaches to reduce food insecurity

Guest: Dhriti Gupta, staff reporter There were more than one million visits to food banks across Canada in 2022, according to Food Banks Canada. It is the highest number on record. In addition to this surge in demand, food banks are grappling with rising food costs. One of them is the Allan Gardens Food Bank in Toronto, which has seen an almost 50 per cent increase in individuals served in just a year. Through the lens of this food bank, we try to understand the larger problem of food insecurity and what needs to happen next.

This episode is again bought to you by the powers of Covid. I've picked it up for the first time, unfashionably late to the party as ever. Apologies here for covid coughing throughout. We talk through health anxiety, symptoms, and worrying about the unknown. We also have a chat about the guilt of missing out on training through illness.VeganismMoving on from covid, we talk about our ongoing experiments with veganism, which are mostly positive with a few tofu pitfalls. This, unsurprisingly, segues into a discussion on bowel habits and then IBS – not that either of our experiences with IBS have anything to do with veganism.Food bank runSpeaking of food, we have a big old chat about a new campaign called Food Bank Run. I spoke to Sarah Donaghy recently, who set this up, and it's genius. I'd love as many of us as possible to sign up to doing this. The idea is that we all go for a run in February, when demand is at its highest, to drop off some food at a food bank to help people who desperately need our support right now.Pod powerWhy don't we do our first Food Bank Run as a Pod Squad thing. I suggest we all go for a run in the week beginning 6th February. So that means we've all got a whole week to do a run of whatever length you like and drop off one or two things to your local foodbank. My nearest food bank is just a few minutes away – it's easy to check online if you're not sure.

BPC is a Matthew 25 Church!Then the righteous will answer him, ‘Lord, when was it that we saw you hungry and gave you food, or thirsty and gave you something to drink? And when was it that we saw you a stranger and welcomed you, or naked and gave you clothing? And when was it that we saw you sick or in prison and visited you?' And the king will answer them, ‘Truly I tell you, just as you did it to one of the least of these who are members of my family, you did it to me.'Matthew 25:31–46 calls all of us to actively engage in the world around us, so our faith comes alive and we wake up to new possibilities. Convicted by this passage, Brentwood Presbyterian Church joins our denomination, the PC(USA), to act boldly and compassionately to serve people who are hungry, oppressed, imprisoned or poor.The themes of the Matthew 25 invitation are grounded in the gospel. Jesus calls us to serve with and for “the least of these” — not as a group to be pitied, but as people who are deeply loved by Jesus. This loving commitment to radical and fearless discipleship has three focuses:• Building congregational vitality by challenging congregations and their members to deepen and energize their faith and grow as joyful leaders and disciples actively engaged with their community, seeing new disciples engaged in ministry and longstanding believers develop in faith as the gospel of Jesus Christ is shared in word and deed.• Dismantling structural racism by fearlessly applying our faith to advocate and break down the systems, practices and thinking that underlie discrimination, bias, prejudice and oppression of people of color.• Eradicating systemic poverty by acting on our beliefs and working to change laws, policies, plans and structures in our society that perpetuate economic exploitation of people who are poor.· Link to current OPPORTUNITIES TO SERVE· Link to BPC's INTERNATIONAL MISSION PARTNERS· Link to BPC's SEASONAL OPPORTUNITIES TO SERVEBE A PART OF THE BPC MISSION TEAMInterested in becoming part of the BPC MISSION TEAM or learning more about the Church's mission activities and partnerships?Contact Mission Elder Steve Ruth (sjruth123@gmail.com) or Pastor Lora East (Lora.East@bpcusa.org). The Mission Team meets monthly, in person as well as via Zoom, usually after the final service of each second Monday of the month. ALL ARE INVITED.Support the showSupport us here:https://www.bpcusa.org/financial-ministry/ BPC Youtube Channel:https://www.youtube.com/c/BrentwoodPresbyterianChurch

Many embrace it fully. I'm an All In guy. Thankfully some find a way to give back and make a difference. Food Banks, shelters, packages left on doorsteps, etc. I grew up in North Vancouver where my Father was a Game Warden. His close friends were police officers and firefighters. So I've always had a connection to that location and community. I saw a posting go by a week ago and it shone a light for me. I hope it does the same for you.

I recently scrolled through Instagram and saw a post from the San Luis Obispo Food Bank featuring a young woman named Claire who had raised $5,000 for the organization since the beginning of the COVID pandemic. She is 12 years old and writes a weekly newsletter called RNC Gardening Tips and Tricks, which she prints and hand delivers for just a dollar per month, and all the proceeds go to the Food Bank. I reached out to the Food Bank to see if Claire and her mother Brenda would be interested in coming on the Consumed podcast, and not only did they both say yes, but Food Bank CEO Garret Olson said yes, too. Garret has worked with the Food Bank since May of 2020, coming on right in the heat of the pandemic. But as the former SLO City Fire Chief, he's no stranger to heat. Listen as I talk with Claire, Brenda, and Garret about hunger in SLO County, how it can go unseen, how the Food Bank is addressing the need, and the drive of people like Claire to help others.

This Thanksgiving, as many sit down with friends and family at tables overstuffed with food, there are millions of Americans who aren't as fortunate. The holiday is a reminder of the stark reality of what's called food insecurity. It's widespread in the United States and there's no obvious end in sight. Katie Fitzgerald of Feeding America joined William Brangham to discuss what can be done. PBS NewsHour is supported by - https://www.pbs.org/newshour/about/funders
