How Food Insecurity Is Affecting Communities on the Ground

Food security is a major concern at the global level, as we continue to face an ongoing pandemic, international conflicts and climate change, amidst an uncertain economic outlook. But what does food security look like at the community level, for individuals and families? And how are soup kitchens and food banks who are filling in the gaps coping? In conjunction with World Food Day (16th Oct), we speak to Justin Cheah, Operations Director with Kechara Soup Kitchen to find out more.
