From 12:00-1:00 PM on June 1st, Oxfam volunteers turned downtown Saskatoon into a hub of learning, engaging and talking about Oxfam’s new campaign – GROW. People started asking questions:
How can we succeed in fixing the global food system to make it fair and sustainable for women, small holder farmers and the entire world community? What are the biggest challenges? What can we do here in Canada?
These thought-provoking questions continued on Saturday, June 3rd as our dedicated volunteers braved the cold and snow (yes, snow!)to speak with shoppers at the Saskatoon Farmer’s Market about women’s rights and food justice. Saskatoon residents discussed the issues, read materials and signed up to join Oxfam’s GROW campaign.
Together we are asking the questions and together we will work to find fair, sustainable and community-based solutions to poverty, hunger and injustice. Oxfam and our supporters have already started the conversation at www.oxfam.ca/grow. So speak with your family and friends, join up with your local Oxfam Campus Club, Community Group and/or join the E-Street team and let’s continue the conversation on how we can create a better future, where everyone has enough to eat, always.
