The whittling away of the welfare state in Canada and elsewhere has witnessed the steady growth of the food charity industry. Cross-national research points to the ineffectiveness of food charity as offering a long term solution. The Human Right to Adequate Food, together with food policy informing integrated agriculture, income redistribution, public health and social policies offer alternative approaches born of collective social responsibility. Will BC and Canada step forward?
