Report on Household Food Insecurity in Canada, 2011

Almost 3.9 million Canadians experienced some level of food insecurity in 2011. This marks an increase of over 450,000 people since 2008. It includes 1.1 million children living in households that have worried about running out of food, made compromises in the quality of their diets, ate less than they felt they should, and possibly gone without eating, all because they did not have the money to buy more food. The release of this report marks a first for PROOF, a Canadian Institute of Health Research (CIHR) funded research program launched in 2011 to identify effective policy interventions to address household food insecurity.
