Cornwall Ontario — Dr. Sylvain Charlebois says, “Canadians expect to pay more at the grocery store in 2013, especially for meat and eggs, according to a forecast by University of Guelph researchers.
Price hikes for staples such as meat, bread and cheese are also expected to drive record numbers of people to food banks in the coming year. At the same time, experts predict Canadian households will waste more food than ever, throwing out nearly 40 per cent of what they purchase.
This is the new food deal for us, or is it? How can Food Banks help, can they make a difference?”, says Dr. Sylvain Charlebois, Associate Dean, College of Management and Economics.
Meet and hear Dr. Sylvain Charlebois speak Tuesday May 7th at the Best Western in Cornwall Ontario from 7:30am to 9am. Get tickets at the Agape Centre.
