Roundtable with Rachel Grey of the Stop Community Food Centre, Toronto
Join us for an informal round table with Rachel Grey, executive director of The Stop Community Food Centre in Toronto, Canada, who is the keynote speaker at the conference 'Beyond Food Banks? Growing a Food Justice Movement in Scotland' on the 28th February.

About the Stop:

A key tenet of The Stop's approach is that community members must be involved in making decisions about how our organization operates. When program participants are involved -- as front-line volunteers, program advisory committee members, gardeners or cooks -- the stigma associated with receiving free food is often diminished or erased. While our food access programming helps confront the issue of hunger, it also creates opportunities for community members to forge their own responses to hunger. We believe this approach will end the way charity divides us as a society into the powerful and the powerless, the self-sufficient and the shamed. At The Stop, we are creating a new model to fight poverty and hunger: a community food centre.

This roundtable is of interest to colleagues working with issues around food poverty, community development and welfare reform.
