"Zero hunger, a sustainable food system, and healthy and safe food"

 

<

The World Health Organization define food security as "all people at all times [having] physical and economic access to adequate amounts of nutritious, safe, and culturally appropriate foods."  Edmonton is not exempt of the issue of food security.  In an updated Vital Signs report, 2 in 5 (43%) Edmontonians believe food security is a problem in Edmonton.    

Edmonton’s Food Bank served 40,647 different people from April 1, 2013 to March 31, 2014 in the form of food hampers.  (This does not include meals, snacks and other food programs) Of this number, 6,296 individuals were 15 to 24 years of age.
