Our main feature this week is part one of a two part interview with Hayley Lapalme from My Sustainable Canada and Dave Kranenberg Director of Programming for the Centre for Social Innovation (and former Executive Director of Meal Exchange). In this episode, our guests discuss the implications of healthy accessible and affordable food on low income communities, and the response to people who think that things like water and food should be privatized commodities and nothing more.
