Town Hall: Poverty Reduction Strategies and Food Security: The Ottawa Food Bank will be hosting a Town Hall on Wednesday, November 13th, featuring a panel of experts speaking about the need for a poverty reduction strategy in Ottawa.

Ottawa has not had a poverty reduction strategy in over a decade, and since the City is currently undergoing strategic planning, we look to make this a priority now.

The goal for this Town Hall is to discuss the need for a strategy, how to bring a strategy forward for the city, what should be included in a Poverty Reduction Strategy, and how it can be used to reduce food insecurity in Ottawa.
