Sharing Bread (Three) A Food Security and Health Learning Exchange
with Suzanne Rumsey and a second PWRDF staff member
In a world that produces enough food to feed everyone – more than enough to include leftovers – 1 in 9 people don’t have enough to eat, many of them women and children.
As part of a three-year campaign, the Primate’s World Relief and Development Fund (PWRDF), the official development and relief agency of the Anglican Church of Canada, is partnering for the third time with Sorrento Centre to explore the complex issues of food security and health in the world, in Canada, and in our personal lives.
As PWRDF expands its work on Maternal, Newborn and Child Health (MNCH), we will dialogue with PWRDF partners from Bangladesh involved in both food security and MNCH work, exploring the interconnections between the two, as well as the impacts climate change has on the communities they work with.
Participants will return home with knowledge and skills to be able to respond to food security and health issues locally and globally. This course will include some hands-on learning at the Sorrento Centre Farm, so come prepared to get your hands dirty!
SUZANNE RUMSEY is the Public Engagement Program Coordinator at PWRDF where she supports a network of volunteers across Canada who educate, animate, raise funds and advocate about food security, health and other relief and development issues. She came to that position in 2010 after 20 years of human rights and community development work in Latin America. Suzanne is also mom to Robin, who teaches her everything (important) that she needs to know about food, health and other good things.
