People Power Community Think Tank: Who owns your food?

Did you know only 10 multinational corporations own most of the food products we buy? These giant companies have taken over many aspects of our food chain, from the farms where our food is grown to fast food restaurants and supermarkets.

How are these corporations lobbying governments, influencing research, and impacting our health, our local economies and our environment? What can we do about it?

Join the Thunder Bay Chapter of the Council of Canadians, and guests Dr. Charles Levkoe (Canadian Research Chair in Sustainable Food Systems, Lakehead University), and Wilma Mol (Slate River Dairy) in our third Community Think Tank series.

Where: Hammarskjold High School cafeteria, 80 Clarkson Street South

When: Tuesday, October 4th. 7 – 9 pm

Refreshments and snack will be provided
