HelpSeeker is excited to present our webinar: Food Security X COVID-19

The COVID pandemic has rapidly shifted social need and service dynamics across communities. One of the most acute needs that has jumped to the forefront of COVID responses is that of food security.

Dr. Alina Turner will be joined by special guests Rod Santiago (Archway Community Services, Abbotsford), James McAra (Calgary Food Bank), Celina Symmonds (Medicine Hat Food Bank) and Steve van de Hoef (BridgeStreet Church, Hastings County) for their perspectives, followed by a Q & A session.
