OPPORTUNITY: Teachers’ Forum on Global Food Security

What is food security? What does global hunger look like? Is food a human right?

These questions and more will be asked, discussed, and answered at Canadian Foodgrains Bank Teachers’ Forum on Global Food Security.

As a three-day forum in Winnipeg, Manitoba on November 22-24, educators will learn all about global hunger and food security. With both topics being such a large focus of reaching Sustainable Development Goal #2: No Hunger, this forum is the perfect opportunity to learn and experience more, helping educators understand the topic itself and bring it back to their classroom.

  • Hunger around the world and here in Canada
  • Canada’s role in supporting international food assistance and development from experts in the field
  • The concept of food as a human right
