Is Canada’s food supply at a tipping point?
Agriculture and food production are essential services in our COVID-19 world, but this is a key time for the industries to ensure we have enough on the table. We now see limits on how much you can purchase at the grocery store, that is if you can find what you need. There are even hurdles are facing those wanting to get crops into the ground. Food can be a big hurdle for living pay cheque to pay cheque who may rely on the services of a food bank. One source of healthy food, farmers markets, are looking at new ways to do business.
