A recent survey shows a direct connection between COVID-19’s damage to the economy and Canadians going hungry.
The novel coronavirus has ravaged the national economy and more Canadians are going hungry as a result, Statistics Canada announced Wednesday.
Food insecurity is sharply higher than the last time StatCan looked at the issue, in 2017-18. At that time, about 10 per cent of Canadians said they couldn’t afford to eat properly; in the most recent survey, done in May, that had risen to 14.8 per cent.
