Food Insecurity in Manitoba is a series of 3 short videos (5 minutes each) focused on Experiences, Causes and Solutions, telling the Manitoba story. Their release couldn’t be more timely as we are challenged by the inequalities inherent in the current economic system.
The videos reflect key project learnings through the stories of those with lived experience and the analysis and wisdom of community leaders. We want to thank all the community partners who contributed to their production. The faces in the videos reflect the rich diversity of our partner network. The videos are very accessible and will be a useful educational tool for all kinds of groups and settings. The production team at Build Films has created a dynamic professional look.
These videos are part of a larger FMM project, Our Food Our Health Our Culture (2011 to 2020) supported by Public Health Agency of Canada. The project enabled work with vulnerable populations, the organizations serving them, community leaders and policy makers, successfully building capacity in the province to address food insecurity.
When the launch planned for March had to be cancelled due to COVID-19, like so many, we turned to a digital platform. This method has allowed us to extend the invitation across the country and we are set up to accommodate as many as are interested. Please share this opportunity in your networks.
The videos, and a series of accompanying print backgrounders, will be available on our
after the launch.
