 No Money for Food is...Cent$less

The Ontario Dietitians in Public Health (ODPH) has launched a campaign to bring food insecurity into the conversation ahead of the 2018 election.    Food insecurity takes a serious toll on people’s health. Adults in food insecure households are more likely to suffer from chronic conditions such as diabetes, high blood pressure, and anxiety. Children are more likely to suffer from mental health problems and teenagers are at greater risk of depression, social anxiety and suicide. Being food insecure is strongly associated with being a higher user of healthcare.
