  1. Millions of people lack food security and healthcare, some intermittently due to varying degrees of poverty; can you use some examples of how this pandemic is widening the gap? What barriers does COVID19 present to how community members have access to food? How does social justice address these issues?
  2. In your opinion, is the Government doing enough to address the inequity in our healthcare system?  What actions and integrated approach can we take towards food insecurity that is related to poverty?
