Animal-sourced foods and food security

Sitting in my in-box this morning was a list of media reports on the "Discomforting comfort foods" study, which brought to my attention two reports that I hadn't seen.

Embedded in Metro's coverage is a video clip that aired on CityTV.

In that clip, Calgary Food Bank CEO James McAra highlights the importance of offering clients animal-sourced foods such as meat, milk, eggs, butter.

He also underscores that while food banks cannot resolve food insecurity, until we redress the societal roots of this public health emergency, food banks do provide an essential service.
