14 - The changing face of food insecurity during the pandemic - Life Unmasked

Life Unmasked

For the first time, we're getting a really good idea of how much has changed when it comes to food insecurity thanks to the pandemic. People who never had to reach out for help prior to March 2020, suddenly found themselves as new clients at the Daily Bread Food Bank once lockdowns and economic devastation due to COVID-19 made its mark on Canada. There was a huge increase in demand at the Daily Bread during the pandemic, but it actually hasn't stopped. In fact, we might not have even seen the full extent of it yet. In this episode of Life Unmasked, the team speaks with Talia Bronstein, VP of Research and Advocacy at the Daily Bread Food Bank, about how COVID-19 affected their operations and how communities rallied together to help those in need. The team also talks with a food bank client about her experience with COVID-19 and how the volunteers came to her rescue.
