Direct your generosity towards food security
(NC) Are you aware of the global goal for 'food security', an issue that doesn't seem to attract a lot of attention in our land of plenty?
According to the World Health Organization, food security is defined as existing when “all people at all times have access to sufficient, safe, nutritious food to maintain a healthy and active life”. This is a worthy goal. observers agree.
Food security is vital and without it, people may not be able take medicine, sleep well, go to school, work and generally contribute to society. Food and nutrition are fundamental for positive physical and mental health, fueling community growth and prosperity.
The Primate's World Relief and Development Fund (PWRDF) is the official relief and development agency of the Anglican Church of Canada, and as such, places a strong focus on establishing food security in communities around the globe. The issue of food security is an integral part of all PWRDF programs, so much so that a new campaign has been launched featuring the fund's president, Archbishop Fred Hiltz, who is also primate of the Anglican Church of Canada.
The Archbishop (who prefers to just be called Fred) is close to this issue and he has spent a great deal of time educating people around the world on the topic. As the 'voice' and person now behind the 'Fred Says' campaign, he is encouraging all Canadians to learn about food security through four unique programs that are making a difference in every day lives.
