Hunger, Poverty, Social Assistance

Executive Director, The Daily Bread Food Bank, http://www.dailybread.ca

'39% of adults go hungry at least once a week,' states The Daily Bread Food Bank's Annual Poverty Report. Join Gail Nyberg, Executive Director of the Daily Bread Food Bank, in discussing the issues of hunger and poverty in Toronto. Helping to define the food bank visitor, she talks about the diversity of clients, needs and services that are being met through the Daily Bread, and why it's not just a food bank. Gail Nyberg outlines changes in the demographics of poverty in Toronto. "The numbers were staggering," says Randall Craig of Professionally Speaking TV.  Being an outspoken advocate for treating both short and long-term problems within poverty, Gail Nyberg moves on to discuss crossover issues with Social Assistance, and how she sees the problem being addressed.
