If you could talk to the next federal government about food in your community, what would you say?

Eat Think Vote is a campaign that gathers community members across Canada to speak with federal candidates ahead of the upcoming election. Our goal is to make sure that food is an election issue, and that the incoming government develops policy that encourages a food system where no one goes hungry, where food is healthy, and that is sustainable. The focus for this campaign is food security, while also making room for
conversations on other food topics.

On Wednesday October 16th, 6pm - 8pm, join the conversation in Perth at The Table Community Food Centre following our community meal to discuss the food issues that matter to Canadians, and specifically to members of our community.

- The Table Community Food Centre is located in Perth at 190 Gore St. East. We are an accessible facility and welcome all community members for the meal and discussion

- The event is co-hosted by Coral Sproule, The Table's Youth Food Skills Coordinator, and Youssef Sawan, The Table's Advocacy Coordinator, with Ayla Fenton as a guest facilitator and policy advisor. We also welcome Meaghan Winegarden, Elections Canada Community Relations Officer, to be part of the conversation and answer any questions on how to vote and participate in the upcoming election.

- Food for thought: all candidates and community members are invited to join us for our Community Meal which is served from 4:30-6pm before we dive deeper into the discussion following the meal at 6:15pm-8pm
