$1 Truly Goes A Long Way

Show Notes From Our Latest Podcast w/ Cynthia Boulter & Caroline Manuel of The Greater Vancouver Food Bank

The podcast for me is an education 99.9% of the time, as I find myself sitting down with guests that can and certainly do teach me so much. Interviewing Cynthia Boulter and Caroline Manuel had me feeling like a kid in school again as I sat there in awe of the information they were sharing with me. Unfortunately it wasn’t the they were teaching me new ways to do long division, they were instead bringing me up to speed and educating me on the realities that we face in this city. The reality that is thousands of members of our communities are requiring help in the form of food. I learned that this is a major issue, and at times a major stress on platforms like The Greater Vancouver Food Bank as they deal with the rapidly increasing requirements that they are facing. I truly appreciated the time and knowledge that both Caroline and Cynthia shared with me, and I am hopeful that their message will be one that creates a call to action in all of us to do what we can to create a positive change in our communities with food.
