When it comes to food security, tackling the issue with food alone is not the answer. Dismantling the entrenched beliefs and systems that lead to the insecurity is a way better solution since it cuts to the heart of the issue, rather than offer bandaid solutions with short-term results.
It’s an opinion that one changemaker has been asserting for years. And we’ll be speaking with him next.
Welcome to In the Business of Change, where we speak with social entrepreneurs impacting their communities and the world. I’m your host Elisa Birnbaum publisher and editor in chief of SEE Change Magazine. On today’s podcast we speak with anti-poverty and food security advocate, Paul Taylor, who also happens to be executive director of FoodShare, one of Canada’s largest food security organizations.
In our conversation Paul discusses the ways in which Foodshare has stepped up during the pandemic and the folks on the ground making it happen. He then shares how growing up materially poor has not only impacted his chosen career but his very approach to tackling food security. It comes down to promoting income equality and human rights, he says, before offering some hopeful thoughts for the future.
