alPHa News: Announcement

ODPH Launches Revised No Money for Food is Cent$less campaign.

October 9, 2019  
Share |


Ontario Dietitians in Public Health (ODPH) has launched the updated No money for food is…Cent$less campaign. The goal of the campaign is for all Ontarians (and Canadians) to have adequate income for food without compromising their ability to pay for other basic necessities. We are aiming to make food insecurity an issue for the upcoming federal election and put food insecurity on the policy agenda for the next federal government.


The French “No Money for Food is…Cent$less” webpages are here:


The ODPH campaign is adapted from the No money for food is…Cent$less campaign originally developed by Simcoe Muskoka District Health Unit.


Please take a moment to visit the webpage and watch the updated video developed by Northwestern Health Unit, view the newly designed infographic, and sign our open letter to federal party leaders on the What you can do? page. Please consider sending the e-letter from your personal email account and encourage coworkers at your health unit or community partners to engage with this campaign as well. 


ODPH will be tweeting about the campaign between now and the federal election @RDsPubHealthON, so please like and retweet our tweets throughout the campaign!


As well, please check out this new toolkit for Youth Action on Food Insecurity!  We encourage you to share this with secondary schools or local community youth groups.  It is still a ‘draft’ which we are piloting this fall.  Anyone using the toolkit is invited to share feedback by December 20th. A final version and French translation will be available in early 2020.


If you have any questions or comments, please feel free to contact Mary Ellen Prange or Tracy Woloshyn
