FoodShare is a non-profit organization that works with communities and schools to deliver healthy food and food education. FoodShare's Executive Director Paul Taylor joins Jerry Gluckowsky to discuss food justice and the implications on one's mental health. Rae hosts this episode, which originally aired on March 14th on CJRU 1280 AM and cjru.ca.
At first glance, healthy food and mental health might not have clear links. But while researching and recording our Mental Health and Money episode, the cost of food became a topic of conversation for the RTNT crew. As well, Jerry, who interviewed Paul Taylor, had picked up a Good Food box at St. James Church. All of this led us to FoodShare and a deeper understanding of food insecurity here in Toronto. If you are not sure what food insecurity is, check out this month's episode and the helpful infographic below.
