Food - is a growing concern for Canada
Food is controlled and distributed like a luxury commodity
Poverty causes ill health and debilitating health concerns and eventual death
Social Assistance does not cover basic needs for people living on a lower and fixed income of Canada
The Food bank in Cowichan needs your support
Children of Cowichan go to bed hungry
Food banks rely on the generosity of sponsors and community farmers
Sometimes, the food is not enough to help all the children, families and individuals who seek food bank services
Help us create awareness and policy changes for Canada to stop corporate abuse and controlled food prices for Canadians
We need a Provincial Food Heritage Fund - to promote basic food needs for Cowichan Peoples who need food to feed their families.
Food is a basic need, not a corporate commodity
Let us work together and stop poverty and starvation of Cowichan Peoples and children
Cowichan is not a tourist stop - its filled with families, children and hard working people seeking better community services when needed.
Food is a need for the peoples
Develop a Food Heritage Fund Policy and Program for each Province of Canada in which Food Kitchens and Food Banks can request funding for each year or fiscal term.
To gain funds from Health Canada, Aboriginal Affairs, Justice Programming, Employment and Education Programs, Economic Programs, Social Services Programs; Policies to align each existing program to donate at least 5%. of their funds to a Heritage Food Fund Program to meet the needs of the people who are starving in each Province and funds to become equally distributed
Let us remove food discrimination and become the democratic country that we want to be in Canada.
Reconciliation begins with your signature.
Stop political abuse, stop poverty, stop corporate abuse, stop hunger, stop price wars on foods for Canadians.
Food is a basic need, not a luxury for price wars from corporations...
Our bodies are a medicine wheel, nutritional food is medicine.
Government has turned the rights of food upside down in a matter of 50 years for corporate greed.

Lets turn this around. Peoples of Canada have the Right to Healthy Food. The Government of Canada is allowing corporations to starve the people out.

Help us, fight with us, and stand by us...

Cowichan families, children and individuals to be fed without discrimination and corporate abuse. Food is not a commodity of shares, its a need. Let us stop political and policy discrimination right in front of us, as Canadians. When children are hungry, they cannot learn. Poverty creates a whole layer of different social crisis and dilemma's for Canadians...especially mothers. Help us, to help Food Banks and especially within Cowichan. Aho....
