In 2015 ahead of the federal election, thousands of Canadians took part in the Eat Think Vote campaign to make food an election issue. These events brought together community members and candidates running for federal office, gathering them over a meal to discuss the food issues affecting their communities in the day-to-day. From Iqaluit to Québec City, from Vancouver to Halifax, people from across the country came together to tell politicians that we needed good food for all.
