Use of Food Banks Rising in Canada?

According to Wendy McLeod, writing for Kelowna Now, “The number of people who rely on local food banks is on the rise, both in British Columbia and across Canada.” In her article, More British Columbians Accessing Food Banks, she further paints an alarming picture of the situation unfolding in Canada and provides her take on the why and how.
