Get My City Growing During COVID-19!
"Canadians are getting their hands dirty — it’s time for city mayors to dig in, too. Ask your mayor to join your community in building a food resilient city.
We’re asking Canada's mayors to step up and immediately give us more space and resources toget our cities and towns growing. They need to provide more municipal lands for growing food and supply people with the tools and education they need.This is our chance to fix our broken food system. Permanently.
The COVID-19 pandemic has unveiled a food system that was already in crisis.Consider that 58% of the food we produce in Canada is wasted every year (over half!) and yet, 4 million Canadians do not have enough to eat. Our global food system is also cooking the planet, causing up to 37% of greenhouse gas emissions while driving deforestation and biodiversity loss."
