Community Food Action S2

Canadian Community Health Survey – 2000/01
Food security is emerging as an area of concern within the health sector – seen as critical to a healthy population and has been identified as a core program for public health by the Ministry of Health.
Rising trends in obesity and chronic disease, the correlation between diet and health, and the further connection with socio-economic status has led to a growing interest in the potential for community based food security projects to serve as interventions to address these issues.
Promotion of healthy eating and ensuring access to nutritious foods is seen to have important implications for improving the health of populations
