DAY 46 - The COVID-19 Daily Podcast with Dave Trafford
This is DAY 46 of the COVID-19 pandemic. Here’s what you need to know on Saturday, April 25, 2020 <<<<>>> We are devoting this episode of the podcast to the one of the most pressing issues during this pandemic…and that’s Food Security. Food Banks were already stressed prior to COVID-19. But now, with more than a million Canadians losing their jobs last month the food banks are experiencing a surge in users. This weekend, Canada’s major broadcasters will be presenting Stronger Together: Tous Ensemble at 630 Eastern Time Sunday evening. It will feature performers, artists, activists and athletes in a multi-platform presentation…all in an effort to help Food Banks Canada raise $150 million for its immediate needs. So, we’ve convened three national leaders in Food Security to dig deeper on the issue. We welcome Nick Saul, President and CEO of Community Food Centres Canada, Lori Nikkel is the CEO at Second Harvest, and Neil Hetherington is the CEO at Canada’s largest food bank, the Daily Bread Food Bank in Toronto. <<>> IF YOU HAVE A STORY ABOUT YOUR EXPERIENCE YOU WANT TO SHARE…send me an email.
