Put Food in the Budget!

Please fill in your name and email address below to send a copy of the following pre-written letter below to Premier Kathleen Wynne. Or, if you prefer, write your own message directly to Premier Kathleen Wynne at her email address.

Premier Wynne:

I did the math. I know that current social assistance rates do not add up to a life of health and dignity. Even the basics of food and shelter are out of reach.

I ask you to immediately introduce a $100/month Healthy Food Supplement for all adults on social assistance as a first step towards meeting basic needs.

But that's just the first step. There needs to be a clear and transparent process for setting social assistance rates - rates that are based on the real costs of living a healthy, dignified life in Ontario.

I urge you to Do the Math too!
