    Food insecurity is a major issue worldwide, but is it an issue locally?

MaryEllen Zielman, the Executive Director of the Huron County Food Bank Distribution Center, says it is a major concern here.

   

Zielman says that more needs to be done to provide living wages.

She adds County Council has done quite a lot, but the provincial and federal governments need to do more.

She says so many people contribute to the success of the food bank.

   

Zielman also says that locally you can keep an eye out for your friends and neighbours since for every one person who uses a foodbank, there's four others who should, but won't.
