Children are struggling to access
food due to the covid-19 pandemic
Here’s what communities are saying
Turnor Lake and Birch Narrows Dene Nation, Saskatchewan
Our most urgent need is having enough fresh and nutritious food for the community. There are a number of low-income families who don’t have the option to stock up on groceries. Nearly 40 babies are at risk of running out of formula. Rebecca Sylvestre and Hélène Hebert, Board Members, Turnor Lake and Birch Narrows Community Food Centre
The pandemic has seriously affected families, especially those who work in the informal sector on a daily basis who are not earning any money. There are families that are facing difficulties in accessing enough food for their children.Shirley Estevez Villazón, Country Director, Bolivia
