Come and learn about the BC Civil Liberties Association’s Right to Food project and our research on how Canadian law can be used to enforce the right to food.  You’ll also hear from a panel of Kelowna experts about what communities are doing in the absence of a rights-based national food strategy and the ways they are working towards food justice and an end to poverty.
