ESPC in the News: Susan Morrissey discusses food security in EDify magazine

April 13, 2021

In the April 2021 issue of Edify magazine (formerly known as Avenue magazine), our Executive Director Susan Morrissey was quoted in an article about food security initiatives in Edmonton that have been undertaken since the COVID-19 pandemic began.

Excerpt: “Morrissey said COVID ‘is shining the spotlight on the vulnerable.’ As the virus forces people out of work, prices at the grocery stores are rising. These are adding to trends regarding food affordability and access that ESPC was seeing pre-pandemic.

‘When you are making the minimum, and 30 per cent of what you make goes to paying your rent, there’s not enough left over for good nutritious food,’ she says.” (p. 15)

The issue is available free on stands across the city and online here: https://bit.ly/3dDVNhs
