About Food Thoughts
The United Way of Bruce Grey is a unique organization. Lead by our unconventional and enthusiastic Executive Director, Francesca Dobbyn, we excel in novel approaches to the standard United Way philosophy of “filling in gaps.”
We are long-time supporters of the many volunteer food organizations in Bruce Grey, whether food banks, community meal programs, community gardens, or any other organization that helps to reduce and eliminate food insecurity.
Food insecurity is a largely invisible issue and we have tried to help illuminate the size and the scope of the problem through partnerships with Bruce Power, the Nuclear Innovation Institute, and NPX with the creation of Foodbrucegrey.com. We participate in community partnerships such as the Poverty Task Force and lobby on behalf of affordable housing, having a living wage, helping with innovation solutions to the region’s drug issues, and a host of other issues facing the vulnerable people on Bruce Grey.
Designed to provide a home to helpful articles and blog posts to assist with groups and individuals dealing with issues of food insecurity, this blog is open to everyone.
