How do we create food-secure communities? First, by recognizing we all have a role to play. Real change requires real action.



  • Reach out to another community group and work together
  • Acknowledge the small steps—we won’t leap out of this problem
  • Share the impact stories of your support
  • Don’t let the drive to be perfect get in the way of doing something good


  • Provide adequate health benefits, daycare services, and mental health support for your employees
  • Push yourself to provide the best wages you can
  • Increase the minimum number of hours you provide employees
  • Use your position to influence social policy and support community action


  • Push for programs and policies that support all constituents
  • Increase Income Assistance levels, especially for single individuals and couples without children
  • Develop policies and actions based on evidence and measurable results
