Thought-provoking, Free Town Halls
Winnipeg Harvest and Canadian Foodgrains Bank invite the public to attend two free Public Town Halls in conjunction with the Food Security Assembly.
On Thursday, October 14 from 7 pm to 9 pm, at the West End Cultural Centre, 586

Rempel (farmer, ag biotech researcher from MB) will tackle this question.
On Friday, October 15 from 7 pm to 9 pm, at Crossways-In-Common Sanctuary,
222 Furby Street, our panel discusses Human Rights and Food: What’s the Connection?
with distinguished guests Carole Samdup (globalization/human rights specialist from
