We dive deep into food insecurity within the province with Valerie Tarasuk, and how COVID-19 has accentuated the issue.Valerie Tarasuk is a professor in the Department of Nutritional Sciences at the University of Toronto, and leads PROOF, a research program launched with funding from CIHR to investigate policy interventions to reduce food insecurity in Canada.Valerie critically discusses the research findings from The Future of BC’s Food Systems: Findings and Recommendations (British Columbia) by The Food Security Task Force, and provides her insights on the idea of a universal basic income. The Balance is recorded and produced by BCAHL’s Communications Manager on the traditional, unceded territories of the xʷməθkʷəy̓əm (Musqueam), Skwxwú7mesh (Squamish) and səl̓ilwətaʔɬ (Tsleil-Waututh) Nations.
