Community gardens help tackle food insecurity

by Bob McIntyre

As part of its mandate to address food insecurity, Anti-Hunger Coalition Timmins [Ontario, Canada] organizes two community gardens every year – one in Timmins and one in South Porcupine.

“Anti-Hunger Coaltion is always looking for opportunities to collaborate and to spread awareness of food security efforts in our community and growing your own food is definitely one of the ways that we encourage people to access that fresh, healthy, affordable food.”
