This report contains shocking testimony about hunger in Ontario as well as recommendations to help resolve this preventable crisis.
Based on the evidence presented at the Hunger Inquiry, panelists agreed that the principle means by which hunger should be addressed in Ontario should be to raise incomes and made a number of recommendations toward this end. The RRC have responded to the recommendations with a focus on social assistance rates which we believe must be raised immediately in order to stave off a drastic increase in serious health concerns stemming from widespread hunger and malnourishment among the poorest Ontarians.
